ATI Radeon 9100 64 Meg

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.videocards.ati (More info?)

Hello!

I am trying to get a good laptop to play some of the more recent
games. The Computer Company is trying to give me a ATI Radeon 9100 64
Meg.
Can you tell me if it has it's own memory or if it pulls from the
Onboard Memory?

Thanks,

Keep Smilin'

    It should have own memory. All ati-mobility-radeon cards (7500 and above)
    use seperate memory.

    I've never heard about a mobility 9100 card.?! (9100 is same as slower
    version 8500, 8500LE). It must be a Mobility Radeon 9000 64mb. Which is a ok
    card for rpg, sim and racing games from 2003-2002. However, most new FPS
    games run slow on it.

    It is built into the motherboard and uses system RAM.

    how can you be so sure? in fact, i'd say you are incorrect. most laptops
    with graphics by ATI/Nvideo use AGP, and *dedicated* video RAM

    The 9100 is actually a slower, clocked down version of the 8500.

    The only Radeon 9100 I'm aware of available for laptops is the Radeon 9100
    IGP, and it does not have discrete soldered on DDR memory. It shares the
    system RAM on a 128bit path, from 16Mb minumun to 128Mb maximum. Core speed
    is 300Mhz, memory 200Mhz (400Mhz). The Radeon 9000 IGP is it's crippled
    twin, with a 64bit memory path to main memory. And it's something that's
    integrated into the mainboard, not an add in card. As laptop video goes,
    it's decent but don't expect Radeon 8500 level performance out of it.
    There's a mobility 9200, 9600, 9600 Pro and a mobility 9700 also. These last
    two are a much faster choice.

    I'm sure... the higher end mobility products do have discrete DDR video RAM.
    The 9100 IGP is not one of these. It uses a user definable amount, from 16Mb
    to 128Mb.

    Thank you for the information. Now before I go back to the PC shop
    screaming my heart out for being sold something that I did not ask
    for, can you please make sure I have it right?
    The ATI Radeon 9100 AGP 64 Meg and the RADEON™ 9100 PRO IGP are the
    same card. They pull from the system RAM and is integrated.

    Is this correct?

    i stand corrected! boy im glad i opted for a notebook with Mobility Radeon
    9200 instead of the IGP!!!

    There was a Mobility Radeon 9000, not IGP, it has 64Mb on-chip 128bit ddr
    ram. Not to mention it was a big hit in 2002, I bought my laptop with it,
    and was satisfied so long i had that system.
    It's core was 250 , memory 200(400 effective). It would overclock core to
    275-290MHz easily.. so it was not that bad.

    I've never heard of a laptop that had a graphics chip that wasn't
    built into the motherboard. Is such a thing even made?

    IOW, not at the present time. Correct? I do remember seeing some
    docking stations that would take a PCI video card that did the
    graphics for the laptop when the laptop was docked.

    The Area 51 laptops have replaceable video cards, my Dell Inspiron 5100 has
    a replaceable video card, and so does the Dell Inspiron 5150, the 8200, the
    1150, as well as the Dell XPS. Not all laptops have the video chipset built
    into the motherboard any more. As a matter of fact, I have just ordered an
    ATI Radeon 9000 64mb video card to replce my present ATI Radeon 7500 64mb
    version. You do of course have to get a vendor specific video card for this.

    Thanks for the info. Dell, hmmm. The wife has had Dell 5100
    laptops issued to her from her work. Seven of them. They've died
    from hard drive failures, display failures, motherboard failures,
    and failure to charge the battery. I'm gonna pass on Dell. Think
    I'll beam over to Area 51 to eyeball a possible replacement for my
    old Gateway 9300 XL Pentium II 366 MHz laptop.

    Hope you have better luck with your Dell than my wife has had with
    hers.

    There's only a few very high end laptops that have removable/upgradeable add
    in video cards. One of the custom fabbers and Dell I believe. All the others
    When you open the Control Panel /System Properties/ Device Manager and click
    on display adapters, what exactly does it say?

    No idea, I sent it back. This was supposed to be a custom job... but
    it seems like I got this instead.
