Though it has yet to be formally announced by AMD, the long rumored release of the Mobility Radeon 4870 X2 this month is now confirmed.

Initially shown at this year's CES as part of the performance powerhouse Asus W90 notebook, the Mobility Radeon 4870 X2 should become AMD's top performing part in the mobile world, most likely surpassing Nvidia's current mobile performance king, the GeForce 9800M GTX SLI.


This new Radeon notebook friendly graphics chip ships features core and memory clocks of 600 and 900MHz, respectively, with 1GB of graphics memory available to its disposal.

The Asus W90Vp notebook just became available today on newegg, confirming earlier rumors of this GPU release. For $2200, Asus packs a Core 2 Duo T9600 processor, a huge 18.4" Wide UXGA screen, 6GB of memory and a single 320GB hard drive. A DVD superdrive and multiple connectivity options become obvious additions in this large, 11+ lbs. heavy chassis.
