There seem to be no differences in hardware between the professional version of the recently unleashed Mobility RADEON 9000 GPU and the newcomer. The only things that are not the same between the two novelties are drivers. The FIRE GL Team from Germany guarantees that Mobility FIRE GL 9000 works stable and fast with modern professional applications in all the modes that can exist.
Here are the brief specifications of the graphics core:
- Four rendering pipelines with one texture unit per each one;
- One vertex shader pipeline;
- DirectX 8.1 features hardware support, including SmartShader (processes up to six textures per rendering pass and eight samples per pixel) technology;
- Improved power-saving POWERPLAY 3.0 technology;
- Integrated dual-channel LVDS, with support for QXGA resolutions (2048x1536);
- 165 MHz integrated TMDS transmitter (Digital Flat Panels);
- Integrated TV-Out Encoder;
- Integrated 400MHz RAMDAC;
- Integrated Spread Spectrum;
- Integrated 12-bit DDR and 24-bit SDR Digital Port;
- Improved ratiometric expansion with ATI ZOOM technology;
- MPEG2 decoder;
The Mobility FIRE GL 9000 is already adopted for the new Compaq Evo N800w mobile workstation. Thin and lightweight, according to HPQ, the Compaq Evo N800w features a 2.2GHz Mobile Intel Pentium 4-M processor, 60GB hard drive, 15" UXGA panel, DVD/CD-RW combo drive, support for 802.11b integrated wireless through MultiPort and USB 2.0 support.
