Memory Type 128 MB 64-bit SDRAM
Engine Clock Speed 325MHz
Memory Clock Speed 195MHz (390MHz effective)
Memory Bandwidth 3.1 GB/sec
Pixel Pipelines 4
Vertex Units 2
Fill rate 1.3 Giga pixels /sec
DX Support 9.0
OpenGL Support 1.5
Output VGA / DVI-I / S-Video
Bus PCI-Express 16X
Processing technology 0.11 micron

The X300SE is based on the RV370 processor from ATi. The RV370 architecture utilises 4 pixel pipelines which is no real progress from the older generation 9200SE, as well as 2 vertex units, one more than the 9200SE.

This RV370 chipset is of course, PCI-Express-native and just like all X300 and X600 based cards, there are no plans for AGP versions of the card.

These are the specs as reported by ATITool:

As you can see, the memory bus is only 64-bits wide. Along with the really slow 5ns memories, this is going to hold back the card's performance.
