The MOBILITY RADEON 9000 family is the first and only mobile visual processors to use version 1.4 pixel and vertex shaders, which fully enable users to experience breathtaking special effects coded into the latest video games. The MOBILITY RADEON 9000 family is comprised of true mobile processors with unique mobile features such as POWERPLAY 3.0, ATI?s aggressive third-generation power management technology, up to 64 MB of integrated memory, and integrated LVDS (low voltage differential signaling) which allows the processors to drive notebook LCD screens without requiring additional components.

The speed at which notebook designers have implemented ATI?s MOBILITY RADEON 9000 technology is unprecedented. Unlike competing solutions, the MOBILITY RADEON 9000 product family leverages ATI?s unique FLEXFIT platform architecture, which allows manufacturers to control costs and reduce time to market by creating a baseline platform that can be tailored for different market segments without changing the software driver set or redesigning the motherboard. Previously, consumers have had to wait several months for announced mobile graphics technology to appear in notebooks.
