Radeon 8500 LE (built by ATI) - Radeon 8500 LE (built by ATI)
Tue Apr 02, 2002 | 11:08A| PermaLink
We'll start right away with introducing the card. What makes it different at the first sight from ATI Radeon 8500 model reviewed previously? The most important thing to say is that we received 8500LE in OEM package which includes the card and CD without additional cables, connectors, user's manual, nicely designed box or everything else which came along with 'genuine' 8500 model. We should emphasize right away that ATI assigned full package for LE models too, so it's possible our distributors will import these editions as well. So, Radeon 8500 can be bought in OEM package too, but speaking of additional cables and connectors you're on your own. The problem might be in the fact that standard S-Video and composite cables (which correspond to nVidia cards) won't work properly with ATI RageTheater powered outputs. A lack of adapter for connector from DVI-I to CRT standard might be another problem. Anyone with basic electronic skills can naturally redo or make special cables, although it would be nice to have basic composite cable with converter to S-Video in the most basic package as well.
