Graphics maker hopes to gain more ground over NVIDIA
AMD followed up its earlier announcement of
long awaited netbook Fusion CPUs
of its Radeon HD 6000 mobility series of GPUs. AMD, who recently
seized the discrete GPU sales crown
from NVIDIA, hopes to advance in this market long dominated by its competitor, almost a year after its
of DirectX 11 mobile GPUs
The Radeon HD 6000M series targets several tiers. The 64xx M models will target the mid-range, the 65xx-66xx M will target the higher mid-range, and the 68xx-69xx M will find their way into expensive gaming/enthusiast laptops.
Much like many other players in the graphics and entertainment industry, AMD is touting the wonders of 3D technology, which it is
offering in a mobile package
for the first time. AMD's HD3D will work with those goofy stereo television glasses. AMD will be publishing APIs for use by advertisers, game designers, and whoever else wants to jump on the 3D bandwagon.
For those less interested in 3D, they may still be happy to know that AMD employs and exclusive acceleration technology for the popular DivX video, which NVIDIA does not provide.
AMD's second generation DirectX 11 mobile GPUs also provide architectural refinements over the previous 5000 M series and support EyeFinity, AMD's technology that can drive up to six separate displays, all from a laptop.
