ATI All-In-Wonder 9800 Pro Review
4 October 2011
Excerpt: Introduction While ATI and nVidia continue rip into each other in the 3D graphics supremacy battle, ATI has been virtually unchallenged by any competitor with their ginsu All-In-Wonder card. Capable of everything from DX9 class 3D performance to video capture, digital video output, television in and out, and personal video recorder, the All-In-Wonder has been ATIs flagship line since it was first revealed back in 1996.
Conclusion: The other issue is that fact that LCD screens, like the ones used in virtually every notebooks / laptop, produce the clearest images only when running at their native resolution. In the case of the Dell XPS we tested, the native resolution was 1920x1200. If the GPU isn't powerful enough to provide playable framerates at that high of a resolution, the LCD obviously has to be set to run at a lower resolution.
Conclusion: While some may argue that ATI hasn’t gone far enough with the ALL-IN-WONDER 9800 PRO, lets face it, this is still the most powerful multimedia graphics card on the planet right now. The RADEON 9800 PRO VPU it’s based on is an impressive performer, capable of running neck and neck with anything else currently available on the market.
