ATI Mobility Radeon 9000
The AMD / ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 was the first DirectX 8.1 capable graphic card for laptops and offered a good gaming performance at the date of the market introduction in 2002. The speed can be compared with the desktop version, which is similarly clocked. The ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 was the competitor to the GeForce 4 Go 460 and similar fast. Older games like Max Payne run sufficiently fast with this chip (more than 35 images by second). At moment, the performance can only be compared with integrated graphic cards (like GMA 950).
At moment, there are no Windows Vista Aero drivers available for the ATI Mobility Radeon 9000.
