Gigabyte Radeon 9200 Graphics Card Review

Value market based products on review sites lately has been overlooked. There haven't been many reviews of Xabre, GeForce MX or Radeon 9200 cards. ATI's latest introduction shows that you can get some very good quality graphics without having to fork a lot of dollars for it.


Designed on the Radeon 9000 series technology to drive the Radeon 9200, you know that it's going to have some seriously mature backing. Overclocking on our current card was very minute, we managed to push the core 24MHz above standard (resulting at 274MHz) and the memory 55MHz above standard (resulting at 455MHz), with better cooling on both the VPU and the memory we expect a better result.


Feature wise, the package gives you three games, DVD playback as well as your drivers your package guarantees that you will get the best bang for your buck. Video in and out functions are also welcome as it provides for creating you own home movies on a budget, no need for super expensive cards.


Overall Gigabyte has put a great card together with a great chipset for a very modest price; in all honesty, I consider it to be currently the best value for money graphics card solution on the market today.

Cost Effective
