ATI to release FireGL V5200 series for Notebooks

By Justin Mann on
It's all well and good when ATI or nVidia release the next Radeon or GeForce for mobile platforms, and the performance seen from them in the past 2 years has been incredible on laptops. Luckily for the serious developer, such as AutoCAD users, they aren't forgetting workstation mobile users either. ATI is releasing the FireGL V5200, featuring 5 vertex engines and 12 pixel shaders. Based on the X1600, it's a card that is sure to have decent performance with 256MB of RAM, a 128-bit memory bus and a PCI-Ex connection to the motherboard. Lenova, who own the Thinkpad series now, will already be incorporating this new chip into their boards. We'll likely see more fairly soon.
