AuthorSubject: Spyder/PhotoCal and ATI videocard   [Go to Bottom of Page]

Let me start with the question and then why I ask it. Does anyone know if
the ATI Radion 9800 PRO (non-All-In-Wonder)videocard supports gamma corrected lookup tables?

The reason I ask is that I am considering purchase of this card and I
want to use my Spyder with PhotoCal for monitor calibration. On the Pantone website it says that Radion All-In-Wonder cards will not work with a Spyder,the reason being that the All-In-Wonder cards do not support gamma corrected lookup tables. There are also various references to this on several web postings and forums. When I called Pantone, the tech support guy said this was true but that he thought the
non-ALL-In-Wonder series cards support the gamma corrected lookup tables, though he was not 100% certain and he suggested I call ColorVision tech support directly to be certain. Now,the tech guy at Colorvision said that the lack of support for gamma
corrected look up tables in the All-In-One series was true, but only refered to much older cards in that series and that to the best of his knowledge all new ATI cards (including All-In-Wonder) support gamma corrected lookup tables and thus the Spyder/PhotoCal. When I pointed out that the manual I had just downloaded from the Pantone website said that the All-In-One series had a problem because it did not support the lookup tables his response was that the website must have a very old manual posted. All this does not transmit great confidence to me before I buy the card. The ATI tech support was no more helpful, and I contacted them twice.

So does anyone know for certain if the Radion 9800 PRO (non All In Wonder) supports the lookup tables and thus the Spyder/PhotoCal? Has anyone succesfully used the Spyder with this particular videocard. There is a small program that can be downloaded from Colorvision that they say will tell you if your card supports the lookup tables but, of course, that doesn't help if you don't have the card yet.

Thanks.
