As it is, the few extra FPS is noteworthy, if not very useful. The result is performance that will run between the Radeon Pro and the Radeon XT , though definitely leaning toward the former than the latter. This isn’t a huge jump, but it does address something I mentioned in the XT review, and that is: You might have noticed from the picture that there isn’t an actual monitor output on the board. No, your eyes do not deceive you:

There are prro too many features onboard to pass this up. This might not seem like a big deal to some, but it’s one more feature that’s a pretty significant addition.

ATI All-in-Wonder 9600 Pro: Multimedia Refresh

Well, unless you just don’t want the features, but then, if you weren’t interested in all of the card’s extra functionality you probably wouldn’t have read this, would you? Multimedia Refresh by Andrew Ku on October 16, This isn’t a huge jump, but it ais address something I mentioned in the XT review, and that is: With Unreal Tournamentthough, we see that in situations where the card is being held back by memory bandwidth and not the core speed of the VPU this minor increase in speed can make a big difference in performance – the aw in memory speed achieving nearly the same boost in performance for the AiW as the MHz core speed increase brought about in the XT.

The All-in-Wonder Pro uses a new video out interface that is secured via screws, which we preferred over the clip method that we saw on the first batch of Personal Cinema 2 cards.

The tuner still maintains its TV functionality, but now adds FM tuner support for stations between the ranges of The All-in-Wonder Pro and Pro are the only All-in-Wonder cards that will be equipped with in-box component adapters. When you select this option, a window appears and the tuner flips through your available channels, taking a still image of each channel and presenting it in this preview window.


There isn’t much of an increase in speed in Jedi Academy, though, where it seems that we’re a bit more dependent on overall system performance to get a higher score. So let’s ajw on to the new features.

This is just due to the fact that there really isn’t any sort of radio schedule to access, so you’ll have 9600 set scheduled recordings manually.

Setup of the prro is about as involved as installing the AiW Pro was, with the obvious added step of having to attach the output cables for the monitor output.

The software bundle is about the same as with the AiW Pro. How about even more features?

I suppose this is balanced out by the fact that no internal power connection is needed, but with the input breakout box and output cables there’s a lot of stuff running around the back of your system. Still, it works pretty well if you want to record say, a football game, or the latest broadcast of the prairie home companion. There is actually a small difference in clock speeds on this card, but akw not: Yes, that’s right, the All-in-Wonder Pro supports two monitors.

Recently, the clock speeds for AIW cards 960 been able to keep up with the clock speeds of graphics-only cards. ATi has gone an extra mile with the AiW Pro and added more functionality to the card than in any All-in-Wonder to come before it.

I don’t think I need to explain how useful a feature like this can be, but I should say that it is just one more nice thing to have available in the MMC suite. Man was I ever wrong. Now though, for the first time, we see an AIW surpass the clock speeds of its counterpart.

All-in-Wonder Pro Review – IGN

Included in the box, though, is a coupon for a complimentary upgrade to the new Remote Wonder II. The article talks about the tv display “docking” when you try to move it proo the secondary monitor, but the article goes on to discuss what happens when the tv display spans two monitors and that it shows only on the monitor that has the largest part of the tv display window. You might have noticed from the picture that there isn’t an actual monitor output on the board.


You get a copy of Pinnacle Studio 8, the usual install disc, and a game.

Because of dual monitor support, ATI has been forced to rearrange the connector layout scheme. VGA and DVI are outputs, so naturally, combining this with the traditional output connectors into a single cable makes perfect sense. The first thing I think you’ll notice here in regards to performance is that with a mere 25MHz increase to the memory there’s a definite performance improvement.

Although it’s really just a continuation of the evolution of the All-in-Wonder series, the new features of the All-in-Wonder Pro are pretty significant. What could be a significant change for the product line that already has almost everything? In place of the copy of Morrowind that was included with the AiW Pro, however, you’ll find a coupon good for 99600 free copy of Half-Life 2 that can be redeemed once the game is actually released.
