Trust me, I tried. CNET may get a commission from these offers. It’s also nice to have the composite and S-video inputs. One Firewire port is present on the card itself, the other is present on the dongle, both of which are powered by a 4-pin power connector present on the card itself. A natural progression from having a TV tuner in a computer is allowing you to do digital recording, similar to the hard-drive based video recorders out there such as TiVo or Ultimate TV. But you’d be hard-pressed to tell the difference with the naked eye.

Archived from the original on As its name implies, the DV offered inputs specifically for digital video cameras giving ATI the ability to call it a ai digital video editing solution. With the exceptions of using dedicated decoder cards, you won’t get better DVD playback than with the Radeon s.
Video cards ATI Technologies products. Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic. The card is backed by a three-year limited warranty.

So, I figured running it against a regular GeForce 3 would be sufficient to get an idea of how the card performs in games, not expecting any spectacular results because of the lower speeds, the memory clock in particular.
It’s also nice to have the composite and S-video inputs.
This gives the DV a digital TV tuner this doesn’t mean it can receive HDTV channels, it just means it uses digital circuitry instead of analog which in theory can offer better quality as a result of decreased interference and faster tuning. Don’t show this again.
When you start up the ATi TV program for the first time it will run through a setup program that allows you to configure your TV setup Antenna, Cable, broadcast ari and area and then autoscan for all available TV channels. Each of the All-in-Wonder Radeon cards is based on a Radeon chipset with extra features incorporated onto the board.
This might end up becoming standard practice. I usually complain that video cards don’t come with any packaged games. This would be great if you had a system set up as a home theatre unit, since you can even access the windows shutdown menu and display properties to change settings if they ziw required. I’m not going to run a whole lot of gaming tests here.
The advantage is pretty obvious in terms of saved space, and it also makes channel switching a lot faster. The remote control is — dare I say it — wicked cool.
Here the GeForce 3 soundly beats the DV by some pretty ahi amounts.
Software installation is auw standard couple-of-clicks-and-reboot affair. ATI recommends that you remove any previous graphics drivers and revert to Windows’ standard VGA driver before installing the card.

For the record, the only difference as far as performance is concerned is clock speeds: What about everything else? ATi is one of the few manufacturers I can think of that actually fills up the box that the video card comes in: Sounds great but lacks vision.
Zti costs twice as much as its predecessor, the All-in-Wonder Radeon. Trust me, I tried.

The tuner works great, allowing at to select numerous different input sources and configure channels and such. September 30, February 25, Europe, Pro variant. And if red-hot 3D performance is your biggest priority, a dedicated gaming card is your best bet. Which brings atu to the question raised in the byline: The ports being located on the card itself doesn’t cost ATI much to implement and gives them a good marketing edge over the competition by being able to claim true DV capabilities.
