    ATI All-in-Wonder Radeon 9800 Pro Review
    By Vince Freeman :  September 8, 2003

    Benchmark Analysis

    The All-in-Wonder Radeon 9800 Pro benchmark section held no surprises, and simply confirmed that the addition of all those multimedia goodies did not affect 3D performance in the least. We understood this from the start, but there's an old saying about what happens when we assume, and what it makes of you and me. We didn't want to make that mistake, but by the same token, to find radical performance differences between the various Radeon 9800 Pro-based cards would have been a monstrous surprise.

    Value

    The All-in-Wonder Radeon 9800 Pro retail card has a street price range of approximately $370-$385 USD. This compares to the desktop Radeon 9800 Pro retail board at the $350 range, while the AiW Radeon 9700 Pro checks in at $300. For the top-end crowd, the Radeon 9800 Pro 256-MB is a bit higher priced at approximately $425. At these prices, the AiW Radeon 9800 Pro looks like an attractive option for Radeon 9800 Pro buyers, as the premium is quite small and can be under $20 in some cases. It even presents a compelling case against the higher-priced Radeon 9800 Pro 256-MB, and the greater performance and advanced feature set make the $70 premium over the AiW Radeon 9700 Pro evaporate pretty quick.

    * Please note that online prices are taken at the time of review and are not intended to reflect long-term trends.

    Conclusion

    The ATI All-in-Wonder Radeon 9800 Pro is the best AiW model we've seen from ATI. It features top-end 3D performance, exceptional multimedia features, and is priced so close to the desktop model that it makes the AiW virtually an automatic selection. ATI has produced some exceptional AiW cards in the past, but never have all the pieces been aligned so well, or their product positioned so nicely. The AiW Radeon 9800 Pro is a card with no real flaws, and for the high-end 3D card buyer, ATI now has what we feel is the top overall product on the market.

    Pros:

    • Excellent Multimedia Features
    • High-End 3D Framerates
    • Great Software Bundle

    Cons:

    • No Dual Monitor Support
