ATI, graphics business unit of Advanced Micro Devices, is successfully fighting back its share on the market of graphics processing units (GPUs) for notebooks from the arch-rival Nvidia Corp. thanks to introduction of high-performance and feature-rich chips in time.

Historically ATI Technologies’ graphics processing units designed for notebooks were very popular among manufacturers thanks to low power consumption, easy integration and high quality. However Nvidia Corp. managed to capture a substantial mobile GPU market share in the recent years following acquisition of ATI by AMD and unattractive mobile offerings. But with the Mobility Radeon HD 4000 and 5000-series ATI, now graphics unit of AMD, seems to be back on track.

About a month after the announcement of ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 family of graphics processing units (GPUs) there are at least nine branded notebooks featuring the new chips and the number of design wins will be growing since the lineup has a number of exclusive features, including DirectX 11 support along with rich multimedia functionality and relatively low power consumption thanks to 40nm fabrication process.

At present manufacturers of personal computers use mostly entry-level and mainstream ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000-series graphics adapters, but going forward system builders will inevitably migrate to more advances solutions aimed at gamers.
