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.
