ATI Radeon X1050
Released February, 2007
The Pros:Easily scales a single display across two monitors without lag. One of the few cards left to support AGP interface. Good selection of video outputs for a variety of uses.
The Cons:Most modern motherboards lack any AGP support. Unable to handle the newer games being released. Can't handle HD 1080p video output.

It has full hardware support for DirectX 9.0 and lower, and OpenGL. It has onboard MPEG decoding and encoding acceleration, and can decode HDCP video. It has support for two monitors, and has a TV output for resolutions up to 1024x768. The main purpose of this card was that it saved money by only using the outdated AGP interface, and therefore it has no couterpart in the newer ATI HD series of video cards.
