quite large in terms of performance... :)

in gaming performance the 9700 AIW performs as well as the 9700pro video card... quite well :)

the AIW features are beefed up in the 9700 version... namely picture in picture and also better encoding...

here is the spec sheet from ati on both products

AIW 9700 = http://mirror.ati.com/products/pc/aiw9700pro/index.html

AIW 8500 = http://mirror.ati.com/products/pc/aiwradeon8500dv/index.html

btw... the new encoding tech used on the 9700 actually gives better image quality for recorded products as well as cleaning up the image a little (compared to 8500DV's) when displaying tv output on monitors :)
