whats the difference between the ATI ALL-IN-WONDER RADEON 8500DV 64mb ddr and the ATI ALL IN WONDER RADEON 8500 128mb ddr??? besides the ammount of ram and $100 price difference.


Also where can i get some benchmarks of these cards?

The difference is the clock speed, the 8500dv 64mb runs at 230/190 and the AIW 8500 128mb runs at 275/275. The 128mb runs at the same speed as the other 8500s but the 8500dv runs slower then the 8500LE cards.

Ill look for some benches but i dont know if i will find any.

EDIT: Just check out these benches It shows the 8500dv up against a regular 8500 (64mb) and a GF3. keep in mind the AIW 8500 128mb has more RAM then the card in the bench but that wont have a whole lot of impact on the scores.

i would avoid the 8500dv and get the AIW 128 8500, as DaddyB said, its clocked higher and is a good deal faster with the same or more features
