AMD Radeon HD 6850M

The AMD Mobility Radeon HD 6850M (or sometimes called ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6850) is a high-end graphics card normally found in 15-inch or larger laptops. The GPU is based on the old ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850 and even uses the same chipset. Therefore, the performance and feature set of the mobile 6850 is similar to to mobile 5850, including the large potential difference in performance depending on the used VRAM technology (e.g., slow DDR3 vs. fast GDDR5). See our HD 5850 page for more information.
