With ATI's latest installment, we are bound to see video cards from ATI partners mass producing this latest monster in the 3D field. Gigabyte is now one of ATI's latest partners, and in its past efforts have put a great deal of detail and R&D into their video card sector.
The Maya II 9800 Pro is one of the best video cards available on the market. Priced very low compared to the new FX 5900, ATI is bound to have a winner on it hands through the DirectX 9.0 stages of the 3D era.
Feature wise it is based on the standard Radeon 9800 Pro features, so DVI and TV output are all standard and used. Layout wise very good, ATI and Gigabyte has put a lot into keeping the card compact yet powerful, and the software bundle is definitely a nice addition.
