ATI M11 - What we can say...

At this point, we can't say very much, since this is an unannounced product, which no doubt brings up NDA concerns. So far, what we can say is that M11 has been branded. Additionally, ATI has no plans to use the name, "Mobility Radeon 9600 XT"... You can draw your own conclusions from that.

A while ago, we saw a system equipped with an M11 GPU, and the results were quite impressive, particularly over the Mobility Radeon 9600 (code named M10). The fact that the Mobility Radeon 9600 can attain reasonable frame rates in Half Life 2 seems to suggest that M11 will surpass that marker, perhaps making AA and AF possible in HL2 while attaining reasonable frame rates.

We will have more on this later.

    For the clock speeds of any mobile GPU from ATI, there is a general target and that is usually designated as the official clock speeds. In the past, ATI hasn't achieved their official clock speeds in shipping notebooks with their high eng mobile GPUs, but they have gotten a lot better at it. Recently, they have been just missing their memory clocks by one or two 10MHz increments, while achieving the official core speeds. Clock speeds are at the mercy of system manufacturers, but they work with the graphics manufacturer to get the most performance out of it. This obviously means that there are some benefits for system manufacturers to get them as close to “official.” Reply

    i'm not saying that this article makes any claims about 9000/9200. its just that OEMs have control over clockspeeds, so anything that ATI says their chips run at might not be what you get in your notebook. Reply

    If you're thinking of the Mobility 9000/9200 I don't think the clockspeeds in this article concern that GPU. I was only aware of the clockspeed problems of the 9600s... article mentions nothing of a 9000/9200 using the turbo pro branding. Reply

    regarding ATI clockspeeds, they aren't fixed for notebooks, right? i mean, i'm thinking of the compaq x1000 with the 9000/9200 thing.

    is hp going to try to sell the pro as the turbo pro because they say the performance is the same?

    ignore if this comment is stupid
