— 11:37 AM on August 7, 2002

ATI's Radeon 9700 Pro has been officially announced, and cards are set to begin shipping to retailers on August 19th. We've covered a lot of the Radeon 9700's features in our Radeon 9700 preview, but here's the obligatory PR snip anyway.

  • 128MB of DDR memory;
  • Dual-display configuration including VGA, DVI-I and s-video connectors with independent resolutions and refresh rates for any two connected displays;
  • Fast engine (325MHz) and memory (620MHz) clock speeds;
  • CATALYST™ software support including WHQL (Windows Hardware Quality Labs) certified driver and HYDRAVISION™ desktop management software;
  • RADEON 9700 PRO visual processing unit featuring SMARTSHADER™ 2.0, SMOOTHVISION™ 2.0, HYPER Z™ III, and VIDEOSHADER™ technologies; and
  • Suggested retail price of US$399.
Of particular note is the 325MHz core clock speed, which could hint that yields have been good.
Tip: You can use the A/Z keys to walk threads.
