All-in-Wonder X1900 PCIe
AIW series to be discontinued

It appears that ATI's TV Wonder 650 tuners aren't the only items in the headlines these days. The next products to get the axe are ATI's All-in-Wonder multimedia video cards according to US PC distributors that carry ATI products. DailyTech first heard rumblings of the AIW line being discontinued a few months ago from several video card manufacturers. The latest insider information that we have from ATI distributors reveals that ATI will cease production of the entire All-in-Wonder series by the end of this month. ATI will instead focus on its stand-alone graphics cards and TV tuner solutions.

Whether this latest move represents a shift in market demand for graphics cards with built-in TV tuner functionality or simply a strategic move on the part of ATI in anticipation of the upcoming merger remains to be seen. AMD last month agreed to acquire ATI in a $5.4 billion USD deal. At that time, AMD and ATI announced what the future holds for CPU and GPU development. We would also like to point out that ATI's recent GPU roadmap made no mention of AIW products. 

ATI currently lists the AIW X1900 PCIe, AIW 2006 PCI, AIW 2006 Edition AGP and AIW X800 XT AGP on its website.
