First look at ASUSTeK A7G with ATI Mobility RADEON X1600

| Video Cards News | Posted: Dec 1, 2005 12:25 am

The Hexus lads have scored a first peek at ASUS's A7G notebook which features the (yet to be announced) Mobility Radeon X1600 GPU from ATI. some of the specifications such as GPU clock speeds havent been decided upon just yet, but the brief readup gives you some indication of whats to be expected from the new mid-range mobile GPU once its released early next year.

 

Coming early next year is ATI's Mobility Radeon X1600 for laptops, aiming at mid-range mobile graphics performance. However, HEXUS has exclusively had some hands on time with an ASUS laptop featuring this GPU.. While there's a decent amount of time between now and the shipping date of the laptop, during which specifications for the Mobility X1600 could change, we now have a good idea of what to expect from the SKU.

 

The ASUS A7G laptop features a Pentium M 760, 1GiB of DDR-II RAM and a 256MiB Mobility Radeon X1600. However, the part we tested only had 128MiB of video memory to play with. The cooling system for the laptop is reasonably quiet, suggesting both efficient cooling and power-friendly components, although for its performance class it is a little on the heavy side.
