, 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;

- RADEON 9700 PRO visual processing unit featuring SMARTSHADER 2.0, SMOOTHVISION 2.0, HYPER Z III, and VIDEOSHADER technologies; and
