AMD slips out Mobility Radeon HD 2700

Mobility Radeon HD 2700

AMD's graphics brand ATI has quietly posted details of the Mobility Radeon HD 2700, a new upgrade to the mid-range HD 2600 graphics chip for notebooks. ATI's update is built around the smaller 65-nanometer manufacturing process as the desktop Radeon HD 3800 and runs both cooler and more efficiently than the 2600 it replaces. To run safely in thin-and-light notebooks, it will carry 120 shader processors versus the 320 of the desktop parts and a smaller 128-bit (versus 256-bit) bus. Clock speeds for the core and memory are likely to increase.

In contrast to the 3800 series, the part will not offer support for DirectX 10.1 and related features in the more universal OpenGL standard, but will still have full hardware HD video acceleration and power management. To date, the only known notebook to be integrating the Radeon HD 2700 is an upcoming Amilo Xi 2550 model from Fujitsu-Siemens, though the upgrade is anticipated to spread to other systems for PC makers looking for an interim step between today's 2600 and future 3000-series video chipsets.
