AMD has rolled out the ATI Radeon X1050. It is an low level graphics chip intended for board makers to offer as a minimum-specification Windows Vista Aero Glass-friendly upgrade.

The X1050 contains 16 pixel shaders in four pipelines and fed by a pair of vertex shaders. It's a PCI Express part, but the connection of a bridge chip makes AGP boards a possibility too. Three configurations are on offer, respectively supporting 128MB of DDR, 128MB of DDR 2 and 256MB of DDR 2 video memory across.

Early supporters of the X1050 include GeCube and Tul's PowerColor brand.
