We recently had the opportunity to take a look at the Radeon 9500 Pro video board from Sapphire and we were impressed with the capabilities of the board. But that board is really for those wanting a workable graphics solution on a budget. So what can we get if we have a bit more to spend on our toys?
Enter the Sapphire Radeon 9700 Atlantis Pro "Ultimate Edition" video board. It uses the most up to date ATI Visual Processing Unit (VPU) on the market and has a few other features that may just set it apart from the masses. It isn't cheap, but then I have always been told that "You get what you pay for".
So sit back and we'll take a little trip into Radeon Country and see why the Radeon 9700 Pro has such a cult following. Oh, and we'll also see why the folks at Sapphire added the "Ultimate Edition" moniker to this little toy.
