     The Radeon Mobility 5xxxs are on their way

    ATI was the first to offer a DirectX 11 range for desktops with the Radeon 5xxx range. With good performance and lower energy consumption, they are particularly appreciated as NVIDIA has, as yet, no equivalent to offer. Nevertheless, when it comes to laptops, neither firm currently has anything more than DirectX 10 and 10.1 chips.

    This is all about to change and we should soon see the arrival of the first DirectX11 solutions for notebooks. Asus has just announced the G73JH-A1, a gamer laptop that is available for pre-release order on the other side of the Atlantic. Other than its Core i7, it also has a Radeon Mobility 5870 with 1 GB of GDDR5. While we don’t yet know the exact spec of this card, it should surpass the current 4870 Mobility, while keeping energy consumption reasonably low. At the same time, there is also word of the launch of the 5850 and 5830 Mobility at the same time, as well as lower end GPUs.

    In the absence of official specs, this news should be taken with a pinch of salt. We should get more information on this shortly at CES.
