ATI Radeon 9800SE All-in-Wonder graphic

  Chris12345 21:17 11 May 2004

I am going to buy a new pc and have the option of an ATI Radeon 9800SE All-in-Wonder graphics, or a ATI Radeon 9800 All-in-Wonder graphics card. The 9800SE is £60 less and as I understand it is essentially a full 9800 Pro with four disabled pipelines, and with the all in wonder features.

Is the 9800 worth the extra money?

although not AIW list it should give you some comparison click here

the 9800se is slower than the 9800

128 pro is faster 256 pro faster still

xt fastest of all

depends how much you play games

also, if you buy the 9800SE, and it has the L shaped memory configuration shown in the link below, you should be able to softmod the card to a full 9800 for no extra cost.

Although only half of the softmodded cards run without any artifacts it may be worth trying.

Both cards are still very good, just pay the extra if your going to be playing 3D Games as the SE will still be amazing for DVD' and media but will fall short of it's bigger brother in the polygon count.
