Designtechnica reviews ATi All-In-Wonder 8500DV
Ian Bell writes "Designtechnica reviews ATi's new All-In-Wonder 8500DV. This new card has the graphics core of the Radeon 8500 but with countless multimedia capabilities. It has an integrated TV tuner in it with HDTV support, DVD hardware decoding, two firewire ports and SPDIF output for Dolby Digital AC3 sound. What is so cool about this card is that when added to an HTPC (home theater PC) it theoretically can replace your VCR, DVR (digital Video recorder), and DVD player. It even has Guidestar plus TV guide programming built in. This is one of the best all around video cards on the market right now. Here is the review."
