ATI All In Wonder RADEON 8500 DV

ATI All In Wonder RADEON 8500 DV
By

The Canadian graphics chip and graphics card manufacturer presents a new flagship product in its 'All In Wonder' Series, the All In Wonder RADEON 8500 DV.

This is a name with tradition. ATI has been offering cards of the All In Wonder flavor for a long time, which strive to be more than just your simple graphics card. These cards are equipped with a wide variety of multimedia components. A TV tuner, for example, turns the card into a TV center for the household.

Other inputs include S-video and composite video, as well as the newest feature, two IEEE 1394 FireWire ports, which allow DV cameras to be connected digitally for the first time. For sound playback, the integrated sound card is used.
