ATI officially announced today the availability of its All-In-Wonder X1800 XL in North America - European availability is expected sometime later this autumn.
ATI's newest offering joins All-In-Wonder X800 XL and All-In-Wonder 2006 Edition of video cards. The card promises amazing performance with the Radeon X1800 XL graphics processor while enabling Avivo technologies for the enhanced video and image quality. All-In-Wonder X1800 XL comes bundled with Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0 Plus Adobe Premiere Elements 2.0 software.
The video card features ATI's Ultra-threaded 3D architecture, support for Microsoft DirectX 9 and Shader Model 3.0 and has been manufactured with ATI's 90nm process. It runs at 500 MHz and uses a 256 MB 500MHz memory (GDDR3).
The Avivo technology also promises outstanding video playback, 64 times as many colors than previous solutions for amazing display functionality and user-friendly high definition TV display connectivity.
ATI's Multimedia Center 9.10 software now works even better with existing ATI TV tuner products. Dual-tuner MulTView support now allows timeshifting on two TV tuners simultaneously when paired with an ATI TV tuner card, including the Theater 550 Pro.
In addition, ATI's third-generation radio-frequency remote control device now includes improved support for Windows XP Media Center Edition, and allows for complete computer control through a wireless interface. For users who prefer a traditional Windows XP Media Center Edition remote control, a 50 per cent reduced price offer is included.
