ATI's All-in-Wonder 9200, 9600, and 9600 XT - Wal-Mart dabbles in a bit of ATIby Andrew Ku on May 17, 2004 12:05 PM EST

While we wait a tad for HDTV Wonder from ATI, we might as well backtrack a bit. Since the All-in-Wonder 9600 Pro, ATI has made a few changes in its multimedia line up. New to the mix are ATI's All-in-Wonder 9200, 9600, and 9600 XT. The introduction of the All-in-Wonder 9200 is supposed to supply a value option, previously slotted for the All-in-Wonder 9000 Pro.
Meanwhile, ATI has decided to end the All-in-Wonder 9600 Pro and divvy up the mainstream line into two segments: high and low; where the All-in-Wonder 9600 XT occupies the mainstream high segment and the All-in-Wonder 9600, the lower half.
Regardless of this, the most noteworthy news is that Wal-Mart is starting to carry the All-in-Wonder line, beginning with the All-in-Wonder 9200. Evidently, Wal-Mart is actually seeing (as well as forseeing) the increased mainstream interest into the multimedia PC, and obviously chooses a value-oriented product to sell. ATI, already enjoying the dominant position in this field, can only benefit. After all, Wal-Mart is big, really big.
Anyways, let's get to the good stuff...
