Mit der Einführung des Mobility Radeon 9000 Chipsatzes stellte der kanadische Grafikkartenhersteller heute einen neuen Grafikchipsatz für Notebooks vor. Die Auslieferung der ersten Chips an die Notebookhersteller soll bereits im September erfolgen.


ATi gibt folgende Features des Chips an:

  • Hardware support for version 1.4 programmable pixel and vertex shaders: ATI's SMARTSHADER™ technology takes full advantage of the advanced new features in Microsoft® DirectX® 8.1 and means even the newest and most advanced 3D games will be fully supported;
  • The world's first mobile quad-pipe 3D architecture: Four parallel rendering pipelines to power the most challenging games and 3D business multimedia applications with amazing speed;
  • POWERPLAY™ 3.0, a significantly enhanced version of ATI's industry-leading power management technology which extends battery life in 3D applications and DVD playback, enabling, for example, full playback of feature-length movies. Enhancements include a new user interface and more user control over power management features, and improved power-to-performance ratios;
  • Industry-leading Internet video streaming: New FULLSTREAM™ technology leverages pixel shaders to accelerate video, remove blocky artifacts and improve the quality and scalability of streaming video;
  • Flexible multiple display architecture supported by HYDRAVISION™ ATI's desktop management software enabling productive and effective use of multiple displays and presentation software.
  • A host of other features including ATI ZOOM (to quickly and easily toggle between screen resolutions), an improved ratiometric expansion filter which provides clearer, crisper text and 2D graphics, and frame modulation, which makes 18-bit LCD panels look like high quality 24-bit panels.

Der Chip beinhaltet einen 400MHz RAM-DAC und kann wahlweise mit integrierten 32MByte (64Bit), 64MByte (128Bit) oder externem Speicher (wahlweise 64 oder 128Bit) ausgestattet werden. ATi taktet den Chip, welcher aus 36Mio Transistoren besteht, mit 250 MHz und den RAM mit 230MHz, eine Desknote-Variante soll sogar mit 270/270MHz betrieben werden können. Damit dürfte ATi den vorerst schnellsten mobilen Grafikchip im Portfolio haben.
