X-bit Labs discovered AMD has shown off ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4000 series graphics cards at the Japanese Ceatec trade show. It seems AMD is even planning to release a mobile version of the (unreleased) Radeon HD 4850 X2.
AMD has not released any information regarding model numbers or performance of its new ATI Mobility Radeon HD graphics processors. Given that code-named ATI Mx8 (where x stands for generation – 9th, in case of ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4000) graphics processing units were traditionally aimed at high-end, whereas the Mx6 were intended for performance mainstream market (while the Mx4 and Mx2 were for mainstream and low-end laptops), it is highly likely that at Ceatec either the Mobility Radeon HD 4800-series or Mobility Radeon HD 4600-series processor was demonstrated.
According to the list of products that are supported by ATI Catalyst drivers and that can potentially be shipped, ATI also has Mobility Radeon HD 4850 X2 featuring two graphics processing units, at least in plans. Currently the company preps a variety of new Mobility Radeon HD models, including 4650, 4670, 4850 and 4870, apart from the dual-GPU solution.

These will put Nvidia 9800+ mobile solutions in the doghouse. More bad news for the green team...
