:D Fantastic! The Rad9000PRO AIW should certainly be far and away the best thing since sliced bread. Great 3D perf, features, image quality, TVout, DVD playback and all the AIW goodness. Radeons have tended to be aburdly priced outside the US and Canada, but hopefully the Rad9000 and 9700 series of cards will be a little more intelligently priced.

;) Now all we need are firm plans for a PCI version of Rad9000, I know there's a ton of people lined up and patiently waiting for that one to see the light of day LOL! Oh and Rad9500, it's about time the people had a card which can truly rival the GF4TI cards, Radeons own the entry level and top-end of the market at the mo but there's a gaping hole in the middle :(

:D Great! Rad9000 PCI, Rad9000 AIW and it may even be that ATI are following in nVidia's footsteps and waiting for the Rad8500/GF3TI500 cards to sell off or adjust in price before unveiling the Rad9500/GF4TI4200. Of course Rad9000 cards are largely inferior to Rad8500 but then Rad9000 should settle in to Rad7500 pricing, ATI will have some hugely great all-round products in Rad9000, Rad9500 and Rad9700 and if they can get their global pricing strategy sorted it's great news for all consumers!
