ATI's DX9 chipset hits the road
The graphics mavens up Toronto way have unveiled a new mobile chipset today, the Radeon Xpress 200M, for AMD-based laptop computers. The new chipset is substantially the same thing as the Radeon Xpress 200 that we've reviewed, with the addition of a few power-saving tricks for mobile applications, like this one, explained in press-release-ese:
With the introduction of RADEON XPRESS 200M, ATI delivers onboard RADEON X300 class visual performance and features. This visual performance is complimented by POWERPLAY 5.0, an innovation in power management for PCI Express. Through new capabilities such as Dynamic Lane Count Switching (DLCS), power is adjusted on the fly to reduce GPU power consumption by up to 30 per cent.
The Radeon Xpress 200M is now available in notebook PCs from Sharp and Mebius. (Who?) Mebius.
