All-In-Wonder HD can play full 1080p films from Blu-ray discs using
the ATI unified video decoder. The video card is AMD LIVE! Ready and is
certified for Windows Vista. The video acceleration and recording functionality
for the card is powered by ATI Theater 650 Pro hardware MPEG-2 encoding
technology. On the gaming side the card supports DirectX 10.1 and fully
supports PCI Express 2.0.
Bundled with the card is the ATI Catalyst Media Center software that allows
for easy viewing and recording of live TV programming from over-the-air HD
broadcasts and unprotected cable streams. The card also features built-in
support for Dolby 5.1 Digital surround sound sent through an integrated HDMI
port and a dual-link DVI port is integrated as well.
Techgage reports that the GPU
is based on the older RV635 PRO technology used in the HD 3650. Clock speed
for the GPU is 725MHz and the memory clock is 600MHz. A small daughter card
connects to the main video card by way of a cable and secures in a PCI slot on
the case, but doesn’t actually connect to the PCI bus of the mainboard. When
added the daughter card allows for S-Video, stereo in and out and component
The MSRP for the ATI All-In-Wonder HD card is $199.
This is the first new ATI All-In-Wonder card we have seen in a long time.

off back in 2006.
