ATI Technologies announced today their newest product, the Mobility Radeon 9000, exclusively for portable computers. The Radeon 9000 is ATI's latest and greatest in their graphics card department, and now notebook owners can experience the power themselves.

Here is a list of features the Mobility Radeon 9000 will include:

The impressive list of new features found in the MOBILITY RADEON 9000 includes:

  • Hardware support for version 1.4 programmable pixel and vertex shaders: ATI's SMARTSHADER™ technology takes full advantage of the advanced new features in Microsoft® DirectX® 8.1 and means even the newest and most advanced 3D games will be fully supported;

  • The world's first mobile quad-pipe 3D architecture: Four parallel rendering pipelines to power the most challenging games and 3D business multimedia applications with amazing speed;

  • POWERPLAY™ 3.0, a significantly enhanced version of ATI's industry-leading power management technology which extends battery life in 3D applications and DVD playback, enabling, for example, full playback of feature-length movies. Enhancements include a new user interface and more user control over power management features, and improved power-to-performance ratios;

  • Industry-leading Internet video streaming: New FULLSTREAM™ technology leverages pixel shaders to accelerate video, remove blocky artifacts and improve the quality and scalability of streaming video;
  • Flexible multiple display architecture supported by HYDRAVISION™ ATI's desktop management software enabling productive and effective use of multiple displays and presentation software.

  • A host of other features including ATI ZOOM (to quickly and easily toggle between screen resolutions), an improved ratiometric expansion filter which provides clearer, crisper text and 2D graphics, and frame modulation, which makes 18-bit LCD panels look like high quality 24-bit panels.
  • For more information concerning this recent announcement, you can read the full press release for further details. While a Mac Version is yet to be announced, it is pretty certain that the Mobility Radeon 9000 will most likely be announced in conjunction with Apple's new PowerBooks. Be sure to check in with IMG for more information about the Mobility Radeon 9000 and a Mac release. The final product for PC ships this September.
