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.

Then again, the Inquirer could be right and we could be seeing ATI's mobile part be a pseudo generation behind the desktop parts.... Read more...

M58 was scheduled to be ATI's next high end notebook graphics chip, expect to be based on R520, and indeed this... Read more...
