Mobility Radeon HD DX10 cards for laptops coming in July

In addition to desktop parts, AMD is officially introducing today ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2000 video solutions for notebook computers.

“We set out to create a family of products that would revolutionize the graphics market by introducing leading-edge technology at game-changing price points,” said Rick Bergman, senior vice president, AMD Graphics Products Group. “We’ve delivered on this challenge, broadening the enthusiast gaming market so that more people than ever before have access to the phenomenal gaming and multimedia experiences that the ATI Radeon HD 2000 series introduces.”

Available immediately is the Mobility Radeon HD 2300, the entry-level part, which will be found in mainstream notebooks aimed at the sub-$1000 market. The HD 2300 is built off the 90nm process and is designed primarily just to power the Windows Vista Aero interface and playback high-definition video.

Coming in July will be the higher-end 65nm DX10 parts, the Mobility Radeon HD 2400 and HD 2400 XT, which will bring gaming capabilities to thin and light midrange notebooks. Available at the same time will also be the top-end Mobility Radeon HD 2600 and HD 2600 XT aimed at enthusiasts and gamers interested in high-performance notebooks.

Notebooks from OEM partners including Acer, ASUS, Fujitsu, Fujitsu-Siemens Computers, Gateway, HP, LG, Packard Bell, Samsung, and Toshiba, and ODM white book partners including Arima, ASUS, ECS, First International Computer Inc., and MSI, will be available beginning in May.

lousy performance

i just read an in-depth review of the desktop 2900XT on the german site 3dcenter. here is the link:

http://www.3dcenter.org/artikel/radeon_hd_2900_xt/...

in some benches the card gets beaten by the old 1900XT (!), while in most it is clearly behind the 8800GTX. hardocp show it to be slower than an 8800GTS.

so i wonder now how AMD/ATI intends to compete with nvidia in the mobile market? better power management, perhaps? in a laptop that surely matters, but is nvidia behind in terms of power management technology?

oh jesus... i just reread the article... this is actually one of their DX9 parts with a new name.... how embarrassing (for me because of my reading comprehension skills, and for them because they suck).

now it would be funny of that DX9 2300 would actually be faster than the DX10 2400...
