Radeon Review at MacGamer
2:07 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Our colleagues at MacGamer have posted a quite enthusiastic review of the ATI Radeon Mac Edition AGP, giving it a four out of five. While they are reserving a final judgement on image quality until FSAA is available, they have much praise for the card's speed, compatibility and overall quality of software and design. Here is an excerpt:

Speed freaks who live from one 3d rush to the next will only want to
know if the card is the fastest. The answer, simply, is yes... it's
fast. Crazy fast. Wicked fast. Stupid fast. If speed is what you're
all about then you just read all you need to know. The basic Mac
user, however, has more to do than just play games. Where a few PCs
(and almost all consoles) are used for nothing but gaming, Mac users
tend to do a slightly wider range of things, so naturally there is
more about what happens with that person's video card that goes
beyond sheer speed. Even for gamers, there are more considerations
than just plain old benchmarks in your favourite first person
shooter.
We found this to be true in our review of the Radeon also. MacGamer also notes the strong relationship between Apple and ATI as a positive aspect of the card, and certainly something to be taken into consideration for those who plan on keeping their current system long into the future or plan on moving to Mac OS X. Be sure and stop by for the rest of the review.
