"ATI and vertex shaders :-("

CNET
1 September 2004
  • Pros: Nice directx 9.x features, like advanced lighting, anisotropic filtering, antialiasing...u can say good immage quality and ATI was allways good in 2D like Matrox.
  • Cons: But the main point in 3D accelerating is geometrical calculation and prossecing. And this is still the domain of the unreachable nVidia. Therefor u will always get better results with nvidia if u turn off these quality features and concentrate on 3D calcu

"Another of ATIs Wannabe cards"

CNET
20 June 2004
  • Pros: Has some nifty features, and relatively good performance but for a much too large price tag
  • Cons: Too expensive for its performance, a Nvidia Geforce FX 5700 Only prices around $188 and has better performance, and better platform portability

"Solid Stable Direct X 9.0 Card"

CNET
20 June 2004
  • Pros: Very overclockable - excellent updated drivers - Great value for an older high end card with all the latest supported features.
  • Cons: Does not behave well with ATI TV Tuner cards - the TV turner card freezes up frequently since the Radeon 9700 Pro card was installed (only system change - so pretty sure it has to do with the latest ATI drivers)

"9700 or 9800, can't lose either way"

CNET
11 April 2004
  • Pros: The industry leader. No other company can match the specs of the 9700 or 9800. Don't let the price discourage you; it's money well spent.
  • Cons: None

"This is hands down the best video card made."

CNET
11 April 2004
  • Pros: Where would you like me to begin? The strength of this card strong arms any game thrown atit without any hiccups. The versatility has amazed me with multiple configurations and mutiple monitor uses. It fits well even in the most crowded chassis.
  • Cons: Nothing is 100% faultless, but I can't think of anything that constitutes fault in the 9700 Pro. It is power hungry, so feed it well. I had to upgrade my power supply from a 350 watt to 480 watt.

CNET
5 February 2004
  • Pros: Running a 3200+ System(Asus A7N8X Delx--1GB Crucial DDR 400) and everything is running fine for me. Max out all video settings in any game and runs PERFECT! Everytone that is having problems is because you go cheap on motherboard and on RAM. Tsk Tsk. If y
