We have revealed earlier about Nvidia's upcoming line-up for mobile graphics and now we check out how their competitor, AMD/ATI line-up for their mobile graphics. AMD plans to have dual graphics mobile solutions for their top end line; the Mobility Radeon HD 3870 X2 and 3850 X2. It seems Nvidia's top solution is a single GeForce 9800M GTX here. However, notebook maker Dell has offered dual graphics solution before with the dual GeForce 8800M GTX (G92) card equipped with 1GB memories so we wouldn't be surprised if there is a similar solution for the GeForce 9800M series offered by notebook makers themselves.

Your wife can do a lot more in your life than a prostitute. Yeah its fun and sexy but is the price really worth it? I'll stick to my PC(wife)

Well that was useful. . . .

It looks promising for ATI in the mobile graphics department. However, don't you think the power consumption of the crossfire solution negate most of the reasons of owning a lappy? I for one would not get such a power hungry graphics solution.

If you think crossfire is bad, you should checkout some of the new XPS systems that can have m8800 GTX in SLI, like the M1730. Now there are some hefty power requirements. The battery would last what? 10 min playing games. Along with c2d x9000, 2 640 gig drives in raid 0, and 4 gigs of ram. That laptop would probably out score most systems here on OCN. but then again you are paying $5000 instead of 1.5-2 that a desktop would cost.

While it looks good that they are introducing new parts, ATI's current and previous parts have ranged from pathetic to virtually non-existent.

We will have to see how they perform, given ATI's limited (compared to Nvidia) experience integrating powerful graphics cards into laptops.

I think the 9100 that i have in my laptop is pretty awesome. Its old but when my folks bought it back when it first came out, it was the best gpu for laptops on the market in australia.

Yea, I have seen up to 9700's in laptops, and then x1650, and thats it, I have never see or heard of mobile x1900's or 2900's, I will dig around a little and check.

EDIT: I guess they quietly did release a Mobility x1900, though unlike it's desktop counterpart, it looks like the 7900GTX (mobile) beats it.
