I believe this is the first Personal Cinema card that uses a 5600 chip instead of the usual low-end GF4 MX/FX5200. :)

the remote control is almost exactly the same design as ATI's. but ATI's is wireless whereas this is just IR. is this a rip-off or are they both customized 3rd party hardware? maybe they just rebadged the Remote Wonder now ATI has Remote Wonder 2.

the AIW 9600 Pro has been announced, with higher clocks than 9600 Pro and a radio tuner. imo nvidia is still miles behind ATI in the AIW/personal cinema niche.

lol what's with the anti-static brush and monitor cleaner :confused:

I'd really like to see a head to head comparison between this and the new Radeon 9600Pro All in Wonder... and see their prices.

why a "vs. 9600Pro AIW +" review? It's well known that the high clocked AIW can run toe to toe with the FC 5600U (thus spanking any regular 5600)... it'd be a waste of a review IMO...

Maybe if they did a price/performance/features thingie with a points system to figure out a "bang for the buck" rating or something... unless of course this 5600PC is the same price as the ATI product...

:rolleyes: :D
