ATI X1900 All-in-Wonder

Our friends at PC Perspective have evaluated ATI's latest multimedia flagship, the All-In-Wonder Radeon X1900. As its name implies, this card features a Radeon X1900 class GPU along with all of the multimedia functionality the All-In-Wonder line is famous for. PC Per liked the AIW X1900 quite a bit, and so did we. Here's our evaluation for comparison.

"The X1900 All-in-Wonder is definitely a step up beyond the X1800 XL All-in-Wonder that was released before it. Taking the 48 pixel R580 core and putting it into a multimedia video card was bound to bring the best gaming performance in that class of card we have ever seen. That being said, the 500/480 clocked X1900 AIW didn't live up to the X1900 XTX or XT, as expected, but it was able to come out ahead of the X1800 XT in many benchmarks. The 30% clock deficit it has on both the X1800 and X1900 cards is surely holding it back, but with a single slot cooling design and the extra complexity of the All-in-Wonder features like the TV tuner and Theater 200 logic, the gaming performance is pretty impressive."
