The GeCube 9600 XT AIW is great and has all the features you would want out of a graphics card. Kingmax Australia, the distributor for GeCube in Australia, has also chosen to include a copy of PowerCinema and while ATI have their free Multimedia Command Center, it isn't as user friendly as Cyberlink PowerCinema software.
The overall performance is excellent and GeCube have done well to be the first to hit the market with an AIW flavor 9600 XT. The card looks great, comes with a healthy package and is easy to setup.
While we haven't had a chance to test the new Remote Wonder 2 (RW2), there has been nothing but good praise about it. If you have the ability to get the RW2 we would highly recommend you buy it as you have the choice since GeCube do not include a remote control in the package at the retail level but will be offered as an option from retailers according to our sources from Taiwan.
While some people do prefer to have a separate TV Tuner card there is no denying that due to the popularity of SFF computers growing the ability to have a TV Tuner and a high quality graphics in one is excellent. And at a much more affordable price than the 9800 Pro AIW, its quality home theater PC for the masses.
No speed hit with all the AIW features
First AIW card to the market using the XT core
Great looking card
Can still use two VGA monitors
Good HTPC package
Power Cinema included in Australia
No Ram sinks on the back
Remote Wonder 2 is optional
ATI driver software is still a little buggy
