ATI Mobility Radeon X1700 vs ATI Mobility Radeon X1450 vs ATI Mobility Radeon X1800XT

ATI Mobility Radeon X1700

► remove from comparison ATI Mobility Radeon X1700

The graphic card ATI Mobility Radeon X1700 for notebooks is the successor of the ATI Mobility Radeon X1600. It achieves a higher performance with same current consumption due to strained Silicon. Due to additional pixel- and vertex-pipelines the performance is clearly above the X1600 and therefore sufficient for all games in 2006 with medium and high settings. The direct competitor ought to be NVIDIA GeForce Go 7700 but the performance was compareable to the 7600.

Also a XT variant with a probably higher clock (codename M66-XT) was planned but did never arrive.

The Avivo video engine helps the cpu in decoding (HD) videos.

ATI Mobility Radeon X1450

► remove from comparison ATI Mobility Radeon X1450

The ATI Mobility Radeon X1450 dedicated graphic card for laptops has an improved relation of performance to current consumption compared with its predecessor ATI Mobility Radeon X1400. Both are part of the lower middle class. The performance can be compared with an elder X600, but technically it is a X1350.

Because of the AVIVO engine the card can support the CPU in decoding MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, WMV9 und VC-1 videos.

ATI Mobility Radeon X1800XT

► remove from comparison ATI Mobility Radeon X1800XT

More pipelines and a faster clockspeed enable the X1800XT to have more performance than the X1800 and make it therefore good for elder DirectX 9 games. It is comparable with NVIDIA GeForce Go 7800 GTX.
