ATI’s All-In-Wonder X graphics card – The Tech Report – Page 11
On a more serio Also, please note that the Radeon X XT card shown here is actually the CrossFire master card, so its power consumption is probably slightly higher than a non-CrossFire X XT that lacks the additional chips needed for image compositing.
Still, I think this is a good illustration of one reason why the AIW may not always be suited for one of its purported roles: The higher end Radeon X XT pushes 10 billion. ATI does have the newer Theater video chip with hardware MPEG2 encoding, and we found it to be excellent in our round-up of stand-alone TV tuner cards not long ago.
It is, indeed, a wonder. Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing Customize The Tech Report The monitor was plugged into a separate outlet, so its power draw was not part of our measurement. LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture.
We turned off Aaiw for testing under load. This tuner works in concert with ATI’s own Akw video decoder chip, which is on the underside of the board and not shown in the picture above. These programs add quite a bit of value to the AIW X package for those who don’t have them already, and Premiere Elements in particular should make the AIW package ready to use out of the box for serious video editing work.
ATI seems to have tuned the cooler to allow the card to reach some pretty high temperatures before spinning up its blower.

The Theater translates analog video streams into digital data for computer use, handling the analog-to-digital conversion, filtering, and scaling.
Our Radeon X review samples, however, do settle down to x1090 lower clock speeds at idle in order to save power and cut down on heat. Lost coast at x resolution with 16X anisotropic filtering and HDR lighting enabled.

In fact, the new button layout on the Remote Wonder Plus maps quite naturally though not perfectly to the Media Center control scheme. Subjectively speaking, the AIW X is generally a good citizen in terms of heat, as well.
The AIW X card itself comes dressed in a purple-and-gold color scheme that’s more muted than the fire-engine-red ATI standard, yet somehow has a higher bling factor. Voldenuit It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays.
Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff!
