PC Stats has posted an Asus A9800XT/TVD/256 Radeon 9800XT Videocard review
With a retail price of $653 CDN ($500 US) the Asus A9800XT/TVD/256 is one of the last true high-end cards to be built on the AGP interface. While it is common knowledge that the Radeon 9800XT GPU is one fast little chip, what really sets the Asus A9800XT/TVD/256 apart from the competition is the impressive software bundle it ships with. In that software bundle you get Battle Engine Aquaila, Gun Metal and a five game demo CD. You'll also find a copy of Asus DVD, PowerDirector and how could I forget, a coupon for Half Life 2 when it's available! Thanks to the ATi Rage Theatre chip the A9800XT/TVD/256 is full VIVO compatible, and to this end Asus include a great little VIVO break out box along with the card. Naturally, dual screens are an option care of a DVI-to-analog converter.
