View Full Version : ATI All-In-Wonder 9600 XT Review
http://www.beyond3d.com/siteimages/b3dsmall.gif (http://www.beyond3d.com/reviews/ati/aiw9600xt/)Some months back ATI extended their, ever popular and high functional, All-In-Wonder line with the addition of a couple of new 9600 variants and a 9200 based board. Here we take a look at their top of the line, mainstream version, the All-In-Wonder 9600 XT.<blockquote>"For obvious reasons, the AIW 9600 XT uses the same board layout as the AIW 9600 PRO, rather than the Radeon 9600 XT. It eschews the coloured PCB trend but courts favour with the more experienced buyer via the use of the substantial-looking heatsink. Composed of brushed metal, the fan unconventionally sits away from the chip - it draws cool air in and pushes it out over the sink fins."</blockquote>Read the full article here (http://www.beyond3d.com/reviews/ati/aiw9600xt/).
On page 2, the pictures on the right both point to the top right picture. Still reading...
On page 5, the rightmost card in the top table is the AIW 9600 XT, but says PRO.
BTW, what's with the extreme inefficiency of all card on the quad texture text? Why is it so significantly worse than the triple texture test?
Last page: "The obvious competition is the AIW 9800 PRO" -- from the discussion, seems like you're talking about the 9600 Pro.
(And I really should have logged in so I could edit all these into one post.)
I purchased an AIW9600 xt and an HDTV adaptor from ATI.
There is drastic overscan on my HDTV, so much that's it's unuseable.
Many other owners have the same problem.
Ati informs me that they do not offe refunds..
A product that is advertised as
"Turn your family room television into an HDTV monitor" is Garbage.
Their support offered me an WinXP FAQ, thanks guys.
I bought Canadian and got screwed.. Not Again.
