Radeon 64DDR Garners Best of 2001 World Class Award for Hardware by PC World Magazine - 5:34 am EST - Vigilant [Comments (4)]

Announced in the July 2001 issue of PC World Magazine, the RADEON 64 MB DDR was selected as the best graphics card in the desktop market. Garnering praise was the speed of the card’s 32-bit color 3D graphics, advanced 3D technology and robust transform and lighting (T&L) engine for 3D realism. Also contributing to the award win were the board’s DVD video playback feature, still image and full motion video capture, TV/VCR output, and low estimated street price of (US) $229.

“Whether you’re interested in hooking up a high-resolution monitor or getting more-fluid graphics from PC games, the $229 ATI RADEON 64MB DDR will provide the performance boost you seek,” wrote the editors of PC World Magazine. “The RADEON includes video-in and -out ports, and it supports higher resolutions better than cards based on Nvidia’s GeForce2 GTS or GeForce2 MX chip sets.”

Since its release in July 2000, the RADEON 64MB DDR has won Maximum PC’s Kick *** award and Editors’ Choice with PC Praxis Germany, PC Achat France as well as with Personal Computer World UK. In addition, the RADEON 64MB DDR received PC Format UK’s Gold Award, CHIP Italy’s Best Buy, was selected Innovation of the Year by PC Direct France and received Smart Business’ MVP 2001 Award.
My friend has an All-In-Wonder card and I've been pleased with his resolution (and runs a nice 2D display on his 19" monitor to boot).

I am also pleased with my card, which has been problem free and 80% of the time overclocked.

Good to hear, makes the market price go down once the big dog has some competition.
You guys are getting my to excited! I don't know if I can wait for mine to get here. I just ordered it this morning.
