PCI Video Still Living?

By Derek Sooman on December 9, 2002, 8:48 AM
And I thought that the days of PCI video cards were almost done. Apparently not, think ATI, who have released the ALL-IN-WONDER VE in PCI form.

"the new ALL-IN-WONDERŽ VE, now shipping to retail outlets across North America. ATI's newest value multimedia video card, ALL-IN-WONDER VE, is available for USD$129.00 and complements the ALL-IN-WONDER 9700 PRO at USD$449.00, the ALL-IN-WONDERŽ RADEON(TM) 8500DV at USD$199 and the value-priced ALL-IN-WONDERŽ RADEON(TM) 7500 at USD$149. "

To be honest, this is not such a dumb move. There are a number of budget motherboards on the market which have on-board AGP and no AGP slot. There are also a number of boards from the likes of Dell which are the same. Its nice to know that someone is still thinking about a video upgrade path for these machines.

It's also useful if you want to set up and old machine for (s)vcd & divX playback, but don't want to spend a lot of cash on it... .02$

Good point. I have a guy in my house who has been asking me about PCI gfx cards. Now I might recommend this to him.
