    FIC A92 Radeon 9200 64MB


    (Page 1 of 5 )

    The ATI vs nVidia battle seems to have come to a stalemate with nVidia's new FX5900 able to spar with the Radeon 9800. Both are incredible graphics cards, but at the same time both are targeted at the very small percentage of computer users who have large wallets and feel the "need for speed." A larger percentage of computer users, us enthusiasts, are much more comfortable shelling out $100-200 for a video card as opposed to $300 and $400 necessary to get the top of the line GeForce FX or Radeon. This leaves the rest of the computer market which looks towards sub-$100 video cards, and that is where ATI and FIC answer with the Radeon 9200.


     

    The Radeon 9200 is essentially the 9000 (RV250) but with AGP 8X support and a few upgrades which come with the newer RV280 core. It is important to note that the 9200 still is only DX8.1 compatible. With the 9000 series, ATI has strayed from their past pattern of naming where the first number denotes the DirectX version, since neither the 9000 or 9200 support DX9. Here is FIC's description of the card:

    The Radeon 9200 Series graphics solutions from ATI deliver both high-end performance and a host of amazing features to the mainstream market. From 3D gaming or business multimedia applications to DVD and streaming video, the Radeon 9200 series has the power and features one would expect from a top-of-the-line product at an affordable price.

     

    Well, lets see if FIC's rendition of the 9200 really delivers "high-end performance!"
