Tech Specs

The launch of the All-In-Wonder X800XT hints at how long it takes to develop these "all in one" cards by the fact that it uses ATI's AGP R420 chipset. Announced last Spring, the R420 has since been superseded by ATI's R430, R480, and R481 (a native AGP version of the R480) graphics cores. It's no longer the fastest of ATI's current 3D graphics card lineup, but with 16 pixel pipelines, a 256-bit memory bus, and 256MB of 1.6ns GDDR3 memory, it's still one of the fastest 3D cards available on the market. Either way you look at it, it's a whole hell of a lot faster than the All-In-Wonder 9800 Pro it has replaced!

As you can see, the All-In-Wonder X800XT is a relatively short single-height card, which is quite a feat of engineering considering how many features are packed on there and the speed of the card. It requires an external power source like other X800-class AGP cards, but uses the smaller floppy style power connector and not the large 4-pin Molex (the All-In-Wonder 9800 Pro differed from it's non-AIW counterpart in that way as well).

See below for the technical specs on the AIW X800XT along with the specs for each of the other cards I've used for performance comparisons in this review.
