Graphics chip maker ATI Technologies has rolled out a slew of mobile graphics products, aimed at the AMD notebook and high-end mobile workstation markets.
The company has introduced the Radeon Xpress 200M chipset, claiming it is the first integrated PCI Express DirectX 9 chipset for AMD-based notebooks. Designed for different form factors, the 200M supports all Mobile AMD Athlon 64 and Sempron processors.
The company also claimed that its power management feature, Powerplay 5, makes it suitable for thin and light notebooks powered by AMD's forthcoming Turion 64 technology.
Notebooks boasting the new chipset are expected from OEMs and ODMs including Medion, Targa, Mitac, Gateway, MSI, Compal, Hewlett-Packard (HP) and Sharp.
"ATI is offering a leading edge PCI Express mobile solution with great performance, lightning-fast onboard DirectX 9 graphics and innovative power management," claimed Marty Seyer, general manager of the microprocessor business unit at AMD's Computation Products Group.
"Together with the upcoming AMD Turion 64 mobile technology, we're helping highly mobile PC customers embrace thin and light platforms for powerful system performance, broad connectivity and superior multimedia capabilities."
ATI has also unveiled the Mobility FireGL V5000 graphics accelerator for mobile workstations. HP is the first vendor to support the processor and will feature it in the HP/Compaq nw8240 Mobile Workstation.
ATI boasted that mobile professionals will, for the first time, be using the same geometry processing hardware found in high-end PCs. It comes with eight-pixel pipelines, lower power consumption, six geometry engines and 128MB of GDDR3 memory.
"This combination of technologies is ideal for professional graphics users who need to run 3D-intensive applications," said Chris Convertito, product manager for HP's mobile workstations. "The new HP Compaq nw8240 lets us take advantage of ATI's technology to deliver performance without sacrificing image quality."
