Nothing earth-shattering being that everyone has heard of ATI's upcoming RADEON 9700 line of cards, but just as a formality, today ATI made a formal announcement of the impending release of their new line of video cards. Some of the "features" of the new line of cards include (RADEON 9700 Pro retail that is):
  • 128MB of DDR memory
  • Dual-display configuration including VGA, DVI-I and s-video connectors with independent resolutions and refresh rates for any two connected displays
  • Fast engine (325MHz) and memory (620MHz) clock speeds
  • CATALYST™ software support including WHQL (Windows Hardware Quality Labs) certified driver and HYDRAVISION™ desktop management software
  • RADEON 9700 PRO visual processing unit featuring SMARTSHADER™ 2.0, SMOOTHVISION™ 2.0, HYPER Z™ III, and VIDEOSHADER™ technologies
  • All this and more for the suggested retail price of US$399. With the prices Nvidia and ATI charge for their top-of-the-line adapters, almost makes you think about purchasing a Trident XP4 like AnandTech was discussing, doesn't it? Not that I could bring myself to buy a Trident for my main gaming machine anyhow.
