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.
