    ATI Radeon 7500

    Introduction

    ATI has recently taken charge, changed their target market, and given some stiff competition to NVIDIA. The most well known Radeon's are the 7500, 8500, and All-In-Wonder 8500DV. All three of those cards feature DDR memory which essentially double the memory bandwidth over SDRAM. There are less powerful Radeon's that ATI offers, the 7200 and 7000 which both feature SDRAM.

    Today we will be taking a look at the 7500. We should be reviewing both the 8500 and 8500DV in the very near future so look for that in the upcoming weeks.

    Let's just jump into the review and start off by taking a look at the specs and features.
