The new ATI graphics chips are coming soon, and the mobile HD4800 is ready for production.
Not long ago the desktop versions of the cards The ATI Radeon HD4800 screen Have entered the graphics card market, and have become very popular, now these chips are also going to laptops. The first portable graphics chip in the series will be called HD4870, and as in the desktop version it will contain 800 processors for streaming and memory with its unique GDDR5 technology. The chip code name is M98 and will be generated in the process of 55 nanometer. Later, a slower version of the chip, code name M97 will also be marketed, the amount of processors will be lower flow and memory controller will be based on GDDR3 technology.
To limit heat emissions, ATI lowered the clock speeds of the mobile HD4870 significantly. The core speed will be 500 MHz, and the GDDR5 memory will run at an effective 700 megahertz (MHz), which means that the clock speeds are approximately 2800 per core and 30 per memory than the desktop version. The first mobile that will contain the mobile HD20 are expected to be marketed very soon.
Only a little information was released about the second chip, the M97. It is known that it will contain fewer flow processors and its core speed will be 500 MHz. Its memory technology will be GDDR3 and the memory speed will be about 850 MHz. It is possible that the M97 chip will be based on the core of RV740, which is the first core of AMD Which is manufactured in the manufacture of 40 nanometers, which seems a bit puzzling because the company has just announced the core of the RV740. However, ATI announced that the RV740 core will be launched in the first half of the year.
