ATI today announced the introduction of RADEON XPRESS 200M - the industry's first integrated PCI Express DirectX 9 chipset for AMD processor-based notebook PCs. Designed to support a range of form factors, RADEON XPRESS 200M delivers industry-leading RADEON graphics and POWERPLAY 5.0 power management for a best-in-class mobile user experience.
Flexible in design, RADEON XPRESS 200M supports all currently available Mobile AMD Athlon 64 processors and Mobile AMD Sempron processors. Due to its power management functionality, RADEON XPRESS 200M is ideally suited for thin and light notebooks powered by forthcoming AMD Turion 64 mobile technology.
RADEON XPRESS 200M for AMD will be available from such leading OEMs and ODMs as HP, Sharp, Medion, Acer, Targa, Gateway, NEC, Mitac, Arima, MSI, Compal, Quanta and Wistron.
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.
"ATI has long been a pioneer in integrated chipset technology on notebooks," said Phil Eisler, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Integrated and Mobile Business Unit, ATI Technologies. "Through working closely with AMD on the development of these chipsets we have a compelling platform to harness the performance of present and future generations of mobile AMD processors."
RADEON XPRESS 200M is currently available from Sharp in their Mebius PCXG-70H and Mebius PCXG-50H media center notebook PCs.
