MW: Mac RADEON Announced
10:54 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story
According to a note on MacNN, ATI has officially announced the Mac version of their RADEON series of cards, as expected. The $280 board (a slightly lower price point than predicted) will ship in September, will be both AGP and PCI, and will ship with 32 MB of memory. This is the midrange model of the PC lineup of Radeon cards, which includes a high-end model with 64 MB for $399. The AGP model will ship first, followed by the PCI model later this Fall.
As we noted in our keynote report, there is no mention of this card as an OEM option as of yet, but as it isn't shipping until September that is understandable, as Apple likes to announce products that are shipping the same day during keynotes.
ATI Mac Radeon Press Release
We will be visiting the ATI booth later today to confirm these reports and find out more details on these exciting cards. One thing is for sure - 3 months from now, the Mac will no longer be behind the times in the 3D hardware department, with both 3dfx and ATI delivering cutting-edge cards for the Mac OS - and NVIDIA on the horizon.
