ATI ships RADEON 9500 PRO within weeks of launch.

ATI Technologies Inc. has announced that the RADEON 9500 PRO is now shipping to leading retailers and add-in-board partners worldwide. Based on the highly acclaimed RADEON 9700 PRO visual processing unit (VPU), the RADEON 9500 PRO brings many high-end features, including Microsoft DirectX 9.0 support, to the performance mainstream market.

"ATI is dominating in every market segment with the addition of RADEON 9500 PRO to the holiday line-up," said Rick Bergman, Senior Vice President, Marketing and General Manager, Desktop, ATI Technologies Inc. "Over the past couple of months, ATI has revolutionized the graphics industry with the sheer power and performance of the RADEON 9700 PRO. Now, ATI is continuing to lead the industry by bringing DirectX 9.0 to the performance mainstream market."

Microsoft's DirectX 9.0 is the platform for which many game developers are creating their new titles. ATI's RADEON 9500 PRO, RADEON 9500 and RADEON 9700 are the only products that allow performance mainstream users to access high-end DirectX 9.0 features this holiday season.

With DirectX 9.0 support, eight rendering pipelines, 275/540 clock speed, and 128-bit memory architecture, the RADEON 9500 PRO crushes the nearest competing product in performance and visual quality--making it the best graphics card for the performance mainstream market.
