At the moment, the ATI Mobility Radeon X1900 is the top video card from ATI for notebooks. The performance is better than X1800 / 7900GS. Due to heat problems the marketing was delayed but now this problem seems to be fixed. According first reports it is about 12% faster than a X1800 (Alienware configurator). The performance in our tests was about as fast as the Nvidia 7900 GS.
The X1900 is a enhanced X1800 produced in 80nm. The 36 Pixel Shader count like 12 pipelines from Nvidia cards.
The AVIVO technology allows the chip to accelerate H.264, DivX, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, WMV9, and VC-1 videos.
ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 is a middle class graphic card for notebooks of the X1000 series. Its performance can be compared with NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600. Technically, it can be compared with the desktop X1600 graphics chip + energy saving functions.
The Avivo video technology allows to accellerate the decoding of MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, WMV9, VC-1 and H.264 videos (including HD videos like Blu-ray).
