Orly? Where were these constraints with Mobility HD 4870? Like I said, RV770 has nearly the same thermals as Cypress, so that argument doesn't count.
Only way I can see a 5800 or even 5900 series part being stuffed into a Laptop with nothing other than clock speeds adjusted is the use of the next Process (32nm) or the parts being used in a Dell Inspiron XPS Gen 1 Chassis which had 3 fans and several heatpipe sinks.
I'm going to look at processors for an example, the Pentium 4M, it used more power than the P3 at the time, well Intel needed a mobility solution bad, so they looked at their buddies in the sandbox, which turned out the Core series- which provided better performance at lower power than the Pentium 4M ever did. Which then later on the Core became Core 2 due to the Core's success.
