        Over the past year there has been a change in the video card performsnce war. Where nVidia had previously lead in this area for the past few years, both with their top of the line cards and their lower end cards, now they had to give the performance crown to ATi. It was with the release of the ATi Radeon 9700 in the middle of last year that ATi took the performance lead from nVidia.  Currently the Radeon 9800 and the nVidia GeForce FX are battling for the rights as fastest video card.

    However not everyone can or even wants to be able to afford the absolute 'fastest' video card out there. This is the reason that these slower video cards sell much better than many other video cards. So upon the release of the Radeon 9700 ATi also released their new low end chip, the Radeon 9000. This card while slower than the 9700/9500 still offered acceptable performance for many games.

    Recently the lines between TV and computers was blurred a bit more with the release of Windows XP Media Edition. With this OS a computer became a TV, DVD Player, CD/MP3 player, as well as a computer. This isn't necessarily new as ATi has been making the AiW series for at least 4 or 5 years. Today's review will look at one of ATi's latest but not necessarily fastest All-in-Wonder video cards.

ATi Radeon All-In-Wonder 9000 Pro

    How does ATi present this latest All-In-Wonder?  What comes with it, does it have a bundle somewhat like an MSI video card or is it more like a run of the mill OEM video card?  Lets allow the following pictures to show what the video card and box look like, as well as what kind of bundle is included.  If you would like to take a look at the ATi specifications of this card please for more information, though we will discuss many features in our review.

    So what kind of bundle do you get?  Here is an itemized list:

  • AIW 9000Pro

  • Users manual, Support information, and quick connection guide (very useful)

  • SVHS output cable with SVHS, RCA, TV-Tuner audio out (to line-in), and digital audio out connector

  • Video-in Box with SVHS, RCA video and stereo audio in connectors

  • DVI-VGA adaptor

  • ATi Driver CD

  • Pinnacle Studio 8.1

  • ATi Remote Wonder and manual
