Gigabyte's Maya Radeon 9700 Pro and 9000 Look - Maya Features

It is always good to have choice. Up until ATI released its Radeon 8500, many users wanting powerful computer systems were forced to look for nVidia based graphics solutions. Fortunately for us, ATI hit back hard with their Radeon 9xxx series of graphics cards which presented us with new choices and happily opened the market right up. Gigabyte were one company which went along with ATI and Cameron "Sov" Johnson takes us on a discovery of both of the latest Maya series graphics cards based on ATI's Radeon 9700 Pro and 9000 cores!

Features of the Maya Radeon 9000 Pro

 

 

While being budget orientated, the Maya 9000 Pro is certainly not lacking in features. The Maya 9000 Pro comes with all the same cables and connectors that the Maya 2 came with, including the CD bundle. So you are not left short of games.

 

The Card

 

 

The actual size of the card is approximately the same as the Maya 2. Memory modules are located on both the front and back of the card to aid in the reduction of heat.

 

GPU and cooling

 

 

The Radeon 9000 Pro GPU is located beneath a rather small HSF unit. This unit, while small, is extremely good at it job of keeping the 9000 Pro cool and allows for some reasonable overclocking of the card.

 

Memory

 

 

The Maya 9000 Pro is equipped with 64MB of Hynix 3.6ns memory. For a value card it comes with some high clocking T-SOP memory.
