ATI Mobility Radeon X1700 vs ATI Mobility Radeon X1800
ATI Mobility Radeon X1700► remove
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 ATI Mobility Radeon X1800 is a reduced version of the X1800XT. The performance was at the time of arrival still very good. The card was constructed for big laptops (DTR) as it had a high current consumption and heat emission. All games of 2006 were fully playable in high details with the X1800.
