The latest version of the card, featuring ATI's Radeon graphics chipset, apparently marks the elevation of this card beyond the POS category. Way beyond.

The All-in-Wonder series of cards includes 3D acceleration, video input, a TV tuner and hardware DVD acceleration. As such this had always been a good hardware solution for consumer and business users -- as long as you weren't into hardcore gaming. The Radeon, however, is a next-generation chip that lives in the same neighborhood as the current NVidia and 3DFX offerings. In terms of pure gaming power and meaningless benchmarks, a GeForce or Voodoo card will still be your best bet; but there's no better current value than the new All-in-Wonder if you're in the market for all its features.
