The card itself features a TV tuner input, an HDMI output and a standard DVI output, while an optional add-on bracket provides connections for component outputs, as well as S-Video inputs and outputs. Specs include DirectX 10.1 support, a 725MHz engine clock, 600MHz memory clock, in addition to MPEG2, VC-1 and H.264 hardware acceleration for all your HDTV needs.
Though not exactly a gaming powerhouse, it's nice to see the AIW series making a comeback. This card looks set to be a great option for Media PCs, especially with the limited amount of real estate in small form factor machines. Cards should be available in July under the ATI, Diamond and VisionTek brands with an estimated price tag of $199.
