ATI Mobility Radeon 9200
The ATI Mobility 9200 is a higher clocked ATI Mobility Radeon 9000. The difference is only the higher chip clock (250 MHz, compared to 240 MHz) and the support for 8x AGP (compared to 4x AGP).
The DirectX 8.1 capable graphic card for laptops presented good performance data at the date of introduction. The speed can be compared with the desktop version, which is clocked similarly. The ATI Mobility Radeon 9200 was the competitor of the GeForce 4 Go 460, which was sometimes faster and slower. Older games like Max Payne run sufficiently fast with this chip (more than 35 images per second). At moment, the performance can only be compared with integrated graphic cards (like GMA 950).
At moment, no Windows Vista Aero drivers are available for the ATI Mobility Radeon 9200.
