[tcMag] HD 3850 X2 goes mobile, sort of

post #1 of 30

Not even released or officially announced, the upcoming dual-GPU Radeon HD 3850 X2 seems to be crawling towards the discrete graphics market but entering through a second story window. What this means is that the dual-RV670 card can already be seen on AMD's radar in the PC Vendor ID list. This list features "current shipping hardware" but as it turns out, it includes a few cards that are nowhere to be found like the ATI Mobility Radeon 3870 X2 and a mobile version of the 3850 X2 too.

Bearing the 9506 ID number, the Mobility Radeon HD 3850 X2 suggests that not only is AMD preparing a new desktop card, but is looking to bring the X2 series to the mobile segment, likely to counter notebooks equipped with GeForce 8 SLI setups. Or it could just be typo - either way though, the 9800 GTX will have to compete with the 3850 X2 before the end of Q2.

If I'm not mistaken,they will be the first to have an X2 Vidcard for laptops. I don't remember reading anything on Nvidia doing so yet.

....yeah, have fun playing Oblivion for 20 minutes until your battery dies. Honestly, a gaming laptop is not very practical. Untl they can do something like NVidia's hybrid-GPU where it has onboard and discrete, it just does not pay to have a powerful mobile GPU.

I have friends that have 10lb clunker "gaming" laptops, and all they end up being is a desktop. However,if they had just BOuGHT a desktop, it would have been 2-3 times faster. And if they would have bought a thinkpad or macbook, they would actually be able to take notes in class and not break their back lugging the thing around.

bah, I say 'much ado about nothing'.
