Maya II Radeon 9700 Pro Thoughts
For my first ever experience with the Radeon 9700, my only thought is that ATI have moved nVidia off of the top spot. ATI have certainly put a lot of effort into the 9000 series and the 9700 Pro is no exception.
Gigabyte has done a splendid job on putting this chip onto an equally splendid PCB with excellent cooling, great potential for overclocking and space conscious sized PCB. The only drawback is the need for extra power, but Gigabyte has solved this one.
- Fastest AGP card available
- AGP 8x support
- DX9 Ready
- Cheaper and faster than top of the line Ti GF4's
- Needs extra power

Maya Radeon 9000 Pro Thoughts
The Maya Radeon 9000 Pro is defiantly the leader of the budget pack now. It's based on the 9000 series technology, AGP8x support and ultra cool design moves Xabre and GF4 MX cards well out of the ring. Gigabyte's adoption of the 9000 Pro is a splendid piece of engineering with all of what you will need on a budget based graphics card.
- Faster and cheaper than nVidia MX cards
- AGP8x Support
- DX9 Ready
- No cooling on RAM
