HEXUS @ CeBIT 2007

There's been little to shout about at this year's CeBIT. That's what both AMD and NVIDIA's partners have been telling us.

Popping along to the HIS stand we noticed a multi-monitor setup run off two discrete Radeon graphics cards.

There's nothing intrinsically novel about that, yet one of the cards, an X1550, was hooked up via a x1 PCIe interface.

The half-height card, situated at the bottom, has enough graphical grunt to run most games at medium details and resolutions, and can be fitted into a long-forgotten slot that's on practically every modern motherboard. We'd like to see HDMI present, though.

Looks good for multi screen good-ness. If I can ever afford 3 monitors I might just get one :P
Hopefully they won't be crippled like the first bunch of PCI-Ex1 cards that used hypermemory.

Any word on pricing and availability? Other x1 cards were overpriced and only available from specialist stores.
Awww how cute! It's so tiny.

Haha, at least we can now use those x1 ports on our Mobo's now.
