Message Text: AMD announced its 40nm ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4860 and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4830, GPUs, Nvidia the GeForce GTX 280M and GTS 160M solutions for notebooks and Intel the Atom processor Z5xx series of embedded solutions at CeBIT 2009.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4830

AMD announced the world's first graphics processors to harness 40nm process technology: the ATI Mobility RadeonTM HD 4860 and ATI Mobility RadeonTM HD 4830. These graphics processors for mobile PCs offer advanced capabilities including support for the latest Microsoft DirectX 10.1 games, home theater-quality HD multimedia and energy-efficient features.

"People now decidedly prefer mobile PCs, and innovations like this 40nm mobile GPU show AMD is uniquely positioned to make the best entertainment experiences of desktop PCs possible in a notebook," said Rick Bergman, senior vice president and general manager, Graphics Products Group, AMD. "Depending on the performance of the panel or external monitor, laptops that feature these tiny, powerful but efficient graphics engines can run today?s most demanding game titles at beyond 1080p HD resolution, or playback full 1080p HD video with high energy efficiency thanks to ATI PowerPlay and 40nm process technology."

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4860 graphics will be featured in the forthcoming Asus K notebook.

The new 40nm production process allows notebook manufacturers to deliver more graphics horsepower in a smaller ASIC die size, giving people access to capable discrete graphics ideal for smaller notebooks.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4860 and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4830 graphics processors feature 3D engines derived from the ATI Radeon HD 4800 desktop series architecture with support for DirectX 10.1. The ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4860 supports GDDR5 memory technology which offers nearly twice the memory bandwidth of GDDR3.

The second generation AMD Unified Video Decoder (UVD) keeps the CPU free to run social media applications or virus scan while UVD helps process intensive content such as Blu-ray movies.

Additional power-saving features include ATI PowerPlay, ATI PowerXpress, and ATI Switchable Graphics technologies.



Initially, the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4860 and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4830 graphics processors are available in quality notebooks from leading notebook manufacturer ASUS, with models planned for availability beginning in Q2 2009.

New Specialized Intel Atom Processor Targets Cars, Internet Phones

Intel also today announced four unique versions of processors and two new system controller hub additions to the company?s "embedded" business division product line-up. The new products for the Intel Atom processor Z5xx series include industrial-temperature options, as well as different package-size choices better suited for in-car infotainment devices, media phones, eco-technologies and other industrial-strength applications.



The Intel Atom processor is the company?s smallest built with the smallest and most energy-efficient transistors.

In addition to in-car applications, the Intel Atom Z5xx processor series also targets an emerging category of Internet-based communications devices Intel calls "media phones." The package size and power envelope of the Intel Atom Z5xx series are ideal for the media phone, which provides communications services over IP and easy, one-touch access to lifestyle applications such as e-mail, text messaging, weather information, YouTube, horoscopes and digital photo albums.

To help accelerate this emerging device category, Intel today introduced an Intel Media Phone Reference Design that will facilitate development of hardware solutions to market.

The new products will be available in the second quarter.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280M GPUs

At the same event, Nvidia today introduced GPUs for high-performance notebooks. Included in the group is the fastest notebook GPU in the market, the GeForce GTX 280M, with up to 50% more performance than previous generation enthusiast notebook GPUs.

The new line-up of notebook GPUs from NVIDIA include the GeForce GTX 280M and the 260M GPUs for enthusiast notebooks, as well as the GeForce GTS 160M and 150M.

GeForce GTX 200M and GeForce GTS 100M Series GPUs make playing the latest HD games on a portable platform a reality by delivering high frame rates that are up to 50% faster than the previous generation products they are replacing, all without increasing overall power consumption. Using NVIDIA SLI technology, which enables close to double the graphics performance over a single GPU, two NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280M GPUs can be paired to offer the fastest notebook graphics solution available today. In order to enable a quiet state and to increase battery life, NVIDIA HybridPower technology can dynamically power down the powerful discreet GPU and transfer graphics operation to the integrated GPU for applications that do not require the high level of graphics horsepower.

GeForce GTX 200M and GeForce GTS 100M Series GPUs feature the NVIDIA CUDA computing architecture. O

ASUS, Clevo and MSI are all showing notebooks based on the new GeForce GTX 200M and GeForce GTS 100M Series GPUs at CeBit.
