ATI has teamed up with laptop-maker Asus to introduce a series of 'Ready for Vista' notebook graphics processors. There are three processors in the Mobility Radeon X1K family: the X1700, X1450 and X1350. Each of the processors has been designed to play high-definition(HD) video formats such as HD-DVD/H.264 and Blu-ray and support Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system. ATI's deal with Asus follows a similar deal with NVIDIA in recent weeks to use the GeForce Go 7700 chips in its ultra-portable AJ8 notebook series. Asus will use the ATI chips in its forthcoming Mobile TV, Mobility, Multimedia and Entertainment laptops. Longer battery life is a key component of the new processors, despite running faster than previous graphics processors. They will use the Powerplay 6.0 power management technology, which allows the chips to automatically adjust the balance between performance and power consumption based on the workload.

AMD/ATI seems to like to partner with Asus but unfortunately I think this is a bad move based on the many problems with Asus products in the last several years. I hope Tyan or some reputable mobo company steps up to the plate and starts offering quality AMD CPU based mobos for PC enthusiasts that deliver true performance and reliability, instead of the hack-jobs we've seen for years now .

Amd may alienate some of the former ATI's partners making moves like this.

I'm not just saying this because I own an Asus board, but plenty of people regard Asus as a very good board manufacturer. My board is 100% stable and does everything I want it to, and I've read similar stories. The reason that Asus have such a bad image is mostly due to the fact that they are the largest motherboard manufacturer, so if you have more boards out there, more of them are going to go wrong. I admit that they probably aren't the best, but I've heard of bad experiences from every manufacturer, and Asus boards tend to handle what you throw at them.

I personally think this is a good move for AMD, they need big names to work with in order to keep up with intel's C2D.

From my experience, motherboard manufacturers have the most horrendously slow websites. Asus is definitely at the top though, I rarely get over 15k.

I dont think this is a bad move at all for AMDATI. I also dont see this as alienating it from other customers. What I think this does is put a bold initiative with AMDATI and shows they are serious makers in this business. They are forming reputable ties to manufacturers, and lets face it, ASUS is a great name to go with. All in all, its a nice move for AMDATI and who is to say they wont do more with other MOBOS and System makers.


PS. Look how long it too DELL to come around..

If you talk about downloading, MSI have quite a fast server. (Compare to Asus / Gigabyte)
