IMG Reviews the ATI Radeon 7000

IMG has posted a review by Andy Largent of the Radeon 7000 Mac Edition PCI video card from ATI Technologies. Here's an excerpt:
The Radeon 7000 differs in interesting ways from the 2001 Radeon. While it boasts a faster clock speed and dual-head capabilities, the card has been pared down with one less rendering pipeline and no Charisma Engine to perform Transform, Clipping, and Lighting (TCL) instructions. While these features are used in relatively few games on the Mac (or even the PC), those who like running their titles in 1600x1200 will want to read through the rest of the review closely to see how the FPS scores pan out. The Radeon 7000 isn't necessarily targeted at hardcore gamers though, and excluding a few nagging issues the $50 price drop from the 2001 Radeon will certainly increase its appeal across the board.For the full text of our review, follow the link below.
