    the spec of the 6900 chip sounds pretty good for a mobile GPU

    960 Stream Processing Units
    48 Texture Units
    128 Z/Stencil ROP Units
    32 Color ROP Units
    Engine clock speed: 580-680 MHz
    Memory data rate: 3.6 Gbps
    Memory bandwidth: 115.2 GB/sec

    duh its the same as the 5800 series nothing new here

    5800 mobile gpus were 5700 desktop class performance 6900 are nothing new either

    aka 6900m is a 6850 with slower clocks so expect slightly better tessellation performance over 5800m but nothing else changes

    I had kind of assumed it would be like 6850 vs 5770, with multiple games showing up to 30% increase in frame rate, i know nothing new but still a nice jump in speed if it were true.

    But i admit i don't know the full spec of both the 58xx and 69xx mobility parts so was just guessing based on what little i knew.

    @btarunr: looks like you'll have to replace that ATi badge on the news posts with the new AMD one, unless you're trying to keep the 'legacy' alive.:laugh:

    Most laptops don't have 30" of desktop space to drive.

    sounds closer to an underclocked 6850 vs a 5750 performance wise, as the mobility 5870 essentially is a desktop 5770 @ 5750 speeds.

    still this should be around 30% faster than a Mobility 5870 I think, and that's a whopping great amount of performance for a laptop alright, especially in CFX.
