The X Pro is the first ATI card that supports native Crossfire implementation by a pair of internal Crossfire connectors, which eliminates the need for the unwieldy external dongle found in older Crossfire systems. If you still want this card, look for the version with Megs of RAM as the price upgrade is often marginal. The R5xx family introduced a more advanced onboard motion-video engine. This allows you to experience hyper-realistic light blooms, lifelike skin textures, and silky smooth hair, making this video card the only choice for all die-hard gamers. Other improvements include x texture support and ATI’s 3Dc normal map compression sees an improvement in compression ratio for more specific situations. Because of its smaller design, these cards also offer lower power demands 30 watts , so they run cooler and can be used in smaller cases.
