RADEON 9700 PRO 128 MB cards are incompatible with some AGP 8x mobos
On its support page ATI warned that its new RADEON 9700 PRO 128MB graphics cards are incompatible with some AGP 8x mobos. Some bundles do not even initialize and boot.
Naturally, it doesn´t touch all AGP 8x motherboards. According to some responses, lowering AGP clock rate sometimes solves the problem.
Currently ATI specialist work on the problem. Users are recommended to visit the mentioned page from time to time for possible solutions.
Anyway, all having problems can contact ATI Customer Service. Information, required for help, is provided on the same page (personal data, model, mobo revision, RADEON 9700 PRO 128MB serial, power supply data, AGP clock rate and problem description).
Naturally, most problems might be solved by a simple firmware upgrade. However, we advise all owners of RADEON 9700 PRO 128MB who face such problems to wait for the solution. There´s always an outlet.
