ATI releases another member of the AIW (All-In-Wonder) family : the AIW 9600 PRO. This card is based on the ATI Radeon 9600 PRO chip.
REMOTE WONDER II – With a reach of more than 60 feet, the new radio-frequency remote control unit gives users access to all of the ALL-IN-WONDER 9600 PRO functions plus quick access to all computer applications. Other features include new tactile mouse control, six programmable buttons, four auxiliary buttons, full integration with MULTIMEDIA CENTER applications, color coded-buttons for European Teletext feature, and future upgradeability;
FM RADIO – New tuner delivers FM radio capability to the PC including FM-ON-DEMAND that timeshifts radio content to allow for pausing or exporting to MP3 file formats, 10 preset radio stations, capabilities to edit station identifiers, plus alarm and sleep settings; and,
Dual VGA support – Customer feedback created the requirement for dual VGA output support that is matched with video in and video out, plus TV and FM connectors.
All things start to apear in a 'one card solution'. A few years ago you still needed to buy a PCTV card if you wanted to watch television on your TV, now ATI already brings this for a while with his AIW series. And the even newer FM Radio support on the AIW 9600 PRO makes these even more appealing.
