ATI reportedly working on new mobile chips

Written by Fuad Abazovic

40nm UVD2

It looks like AMD's mobility Radeon 5000 series will get a successor in the second half of 2010.

There is a chip that should replace Brodway, a 40nm 800-shader chip in the high end area, and there is an upcoming chip that should replace Madison 40nm 400 cores / shaders chip in mainstream. The last new chip is a replacement to the Park series that until now have 80 Shader cores for entry level market.

The new cards will bring Eyefinity to notebooks and you should be able to connect many displays to notebooks based on these chips. All these chips are 40nm and are developed under Vancouver master codename.

All these chips should be compatible with ATI’s implementation of Optimus, automatic graphics switching. Let's hope that this can help ATI to gain some design wins as Nvidia really got a lot of attention with Calpella designs and its Optimus capable chips.

Eh? AMD has tons of mobile design wins recently, it's NV who should be worried. Just how many ION2 machines have launched?

this is always good news, every laptop should have something better than intel igp, and more ati chips with optimus technology is the ticket

Maybe they should start introducing really really good and cheap dedicated graphics to the entry of the entry level laptops.

meh, more ATI chips being released mean slightly less Intel ones

Does anyone else notice the huge gap in price between integrated graphics laptops and those with discrete? It seems like you can get a laptop with an HD 4200 for like $500 or so, but for even the lowest end HD 5450 or something the price jumps $300 bucks.

Regarding cost, maybe some surprises are in store with this next generation? I don't see any huge price drops though if things are forced to stay at 40nm.

Also, I think the allowed comment length is too short.
