AMD Returns ATI All-In-Wonder Graphics Cards to Market

ATI All-In-Wonder graphics cards were hardly overwhelmingly popular among gamers, but were rather popular among multimedia fans. However, at some point ATI decided to stop selling such products despite of their relatively strong positions on the market. Now, roughly two years after ceasing of further development of AIW-series, ATI, graphics product group of Advanced Micro Devices, is bringing back the All-In-Wonder products to the market.

ATI All-In-Wonder HD graphics card is based on ATI Radeon HD 3650-series graphics processing unit and is equipped with 256MB of GDDR2 memory along with ATI Theater 650 Pro HDTV tuner. The graphics board will initially be available from Diamond Multimedia as well as VisionTek graphics cards suppliers.

"Never before has this level of HDTV and graphics performance been seen in an all-in-one PC multimedia solution. The award-winning ATI All-In-Wonder lineage is built on long-standing leadership in TV and video on the PC. For the hundreds of thousands of owners of previous ATI All-In-Wonder models and for those hungry to realize the full potential of their PC, we’re excited and proud to introduce the newest addition to AMD’s PCTV product family," said Matt Skynner, vice president of marketing at graphics products group of AMD.

Unfortunately, with the ATI Radeon HD 3650-series graphics processor the new ATI All-In-Wonder HD will hardly provide decent performance in modern games. Nevertheless, with DirectX 10.1 compatibility and rich feature set multimedia enthusiasts should be satisfied with their 3D engine.

Pricing of ATI All-In-Winder HD is unknown.
