Read the AT Preview, Read the ATI launch launch article.

Excellent job ATI! Looks like some compelling feature upgrades. No dual head:frown:, but certainly nice upgrade on the component video output, hardware assisted MPEG-2 encoding, and clocked at 9700 pro levels....when can we buy one?

Wow nice but it will empty your pocketbook. At minimum it will be $499 USD converted to Cdn that's $786 + $110 tax = $896. Holy molly. and I thought that my brand new AIW Radeon two years ago was expensive at $324 Cdn. p.s. I'll buy it anyway : )

Notice they stuck it all on one PCB....amazing, even support dual tuners for picture in picture! The component output from the video-out port makes a big difference on the AIW, won't need to use your DVI port for output to the DTV....NICE!

I've got some cash holed away for my big upgrade later this fall, looks like a little wait before we can use the video shaders and the rest of the DX9 features...but I'm ready now, bring it on. (UT2003 gameplay on my AIW 7500 isn't quite up to snuff for me)
