ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 vs ATI Mobility Radeon 9550

ATI Mobility Radeon 9600

► remove from comparison ATI Mobility Radeon 9600

The predecessor version of the ATI Radeon 9700 Mobility differs by its low clock speed and the worse Z-compression (was improved with 9700). In the beginning it was the fastest graphic card, which was available for notebooks, but nowadays it is part of the lower performance segment.

Beware of versions with 32 MB memory, in most cases they only have a 64 bit memory bus, which deterioriates the speed severely.

ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 Pro was a higher clocked version with 350 MHz core- and memory clock (compared with the 300 MHz in the standard version). Further only a version with 128 MB was allowed to get this name.

ATI Mobility Radeon 9550

► remove from comparison

The ATI Mobility Radeon 9550 was a middle class graphics card for laptops. Technically it is a ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 featuring only a 64 Bit wide memory bus (instead of 128 Bit). Therefore, the performance was noticable slower.
