Dean of 3Dxtreme has for the last 48 hours been working with the Ati Radeon 7500 video card (lucky blighter -ED) and is pleased to report what he"s experienced. The Radeon 7500 came through the review with shining colors.
Here"s a blurb: "I believe Ati has released a high quality product with the Radeon 7500 and I am extremely excited to see what the 8500 can do. While the 7500 wasn"t able to compete with a Geforce 3, the results posted here are well worth the $199 retail price. (Seen on Pricewatch for $152 already) The performance of this card puts it under that of a Geforce 3 but on par or above that of a Geforce 2 pro and ultra. The drivers are stable and decent but with more maturity should be able to unlock even more performance. As a gamers video card the Radeon 7500 is perfect for the gamer on a budget that wants the most price-to-performance for their buck! While taking this review from a gamers standpoint, there are many other features of the Radeon 7500 that should not be overlooked. Second to none dvd playback and Dual Monitor support using the Ati Hydravision technology."
