The Inquirer is reporting that ATI is busy prepping their Mobility Radeon X1800XT series to battle NVIDIA's GeForce Go 7800 GPU's. Considering the fact that ATI supposedly had to lower core frequencies to an estimated 445MHz (versus the 500MHz of its desktop counterpart), it is more than a bit surprising to see ATI not opting to wait for their mobile R580 part. If R580 is nearly ready as the rumors suggest and it is similar to R520, giving ODM notebook vendors an R580 part with a few minor changes seems like a much more strategic move on ATI's part. Then again, the Inquirer could be right and we could be seeing ATI's mobile part be a pseudo generation behind the desktop parts.
