ATI Mobility Radeon X1900

ATI Mobility Radeon X1900

At the moment, the ATI Mobility Radeon X1900 is the top video card from ATI for notebooks. The performance is better than X1800 / 7900GS. Due to heat problems the marketing was delayed but now this problem seems to be fixed. According first reports it is about 12% faster than a X1800 (Alienware configurator). The performance in our tests was about as fast as the Nvidia 7900 GS.

The X1900 is a enhanced X1800 produced in 80nm. The 36 Pixel Shader count like 12 pipelines from Nvidia cards.

The AVIVO technology allows the chip to accelerate H.264, DivX, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, WMV9, and VC-1 videos.
