Graphics specialist ATI has announced its latest add-in card to feature its Rage 128 GL acceleration chipset. In addition to support for 3D games based on the OpenGL and DirectX 6.0 graphics technologies, the All-in-Wonder 128 also offers MPEG-2 decoding to play back full-screen, full-motion DVD movies on either the host PC's monitor or a TV. The card also boasts a TV tuner which can display multiple channels in thumbnail form, display Closed Caption subtitles, magnify individual channels, instantly replay up to two minutes of a programme and show broadcasts as desktop wallpaper. ATI even claims the All-in-Wonder 128 can be used as a digital VCR, allowing TV programmes to be digitised and stored on the host PC's hard disk (provided it's big enough, of course). ATI said it will offer the All-in-Wonder 128 in two versions. The first will ship in March and contains with 16MB of video RAM -- OEM samples are available now. A 32MB version will ship in the second quarter of the year. US pricing is $249 for the 16MB card and $299 for the 32MB version. ®
