    ATI X1900 All In Wonder Features

    I first fell for ATI cards back when the Rage 128 Pro All In Wonder (AIW) card was still a relatively new card. I have since followed and purchased faster AIW cards to keep my PC as multimedia and graphics capable as possible, as my PC has always bee my stereo, my TV, my Games machine and where I also connect my games consoles through.

    As good as the ATI AIW cards have always been for me, back when BF2 was released I was still running a Radeon 9000 Pro AIW card which just wasn't up to the task and things being a little tight at the time I had to drop all the extra features for a dedicated Radeon 9600 256MB card which has done jsut great since (albeit not at anything above 1024x768).

    I am currently looking at the X1900 AIW card and as impressed as I am with the features and spec, I find it somewhat lacking for a modern card. With a far lower clockspeed for both the GPU and memory that its dedicated counterparts.

    I for one, would like to see a GPU used that closer resembles the dedicated GPU's in clock speed, pixel pipelines and the like rather than them being cut down. I think the 256MB ram is acceptable, even by today's standards, but future games will most certainly require some more to support the larger text maps. I'd also love to see a dual tv tuner version.

    So are there any other ATI fans out there that like the AIW cards? What would you like to see present on these cards?

    They are awesome cards and nowadays there is no trade off in terms of speed.

    Sadly I just can't justify the price premium, but I'd love one
