IMG Reviews ATI Radeon 9000 Pro
2:17 PM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story
Available since August 2002 in Apple’s Power Mac, ATI's Radeon 9000 Pro has begun shipping to retail in recent months. It is a late addition to ATI’s Mac product lineup, but certainly a welcome one, especially since it is the only retail graphics card that sports an Apple Display Connector (ADC). The Radeon 9000 Pro fills the gap between the Radeon 7000 PCI and Radeon 8500, providing solid 2D/3D performance and dual digital display capability for $169 USD.
Here is an excerpt from the review:
I played through a few levels in Ghost Recon, Jedi Knight 2, Soldier of Fortune 2, Medal of Honor, and Return to Castle Wolfenstein. As far as I could tell, the performance was indistinguishable from the Radeon 8500 using identical settings (1024x768 resolution, most detail options at high). To confirm my results, I subjected my neighbor to several cruel minutes of experiments using the "blind taste test" methodology. I switched between the Radeon 9000 and 8500 while he was absent from the "labs" and he too, was not able to tell the difference. But then again, this is someone who actually believes Miller Lite is less filling.For more information, including 3D benchmark results and game performance testing, read the rest of the review.
