ATI Mobility Radeon X1800XT vs ATI Mobility Radeon X1700
ATI Mobility Radeon X1800XT► remove
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.

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.
