Somebody take a screen shot... I see the merger integration is going well :lol: 

I guess they didn't want to bottleneck the GPU. 8O

AMD will do anything to make a buck these days :) 

At least they didn't list the specs like . . .

* ATI’s Mobility Radeon™ X2300 GPU f

* Instant Fun PLUS for direct multimedia access to a wide range of digital entertainment applications

* Exclusive ASUS Splendid Color Enhancement Engine for vibrant visual enjoyment

* Built-in high resolution webcam for wire-free live video communication

* Three times faster data transfer rate with Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) Bluetooth™

* Intel’s Core2 Duo processor

Technically, it is ATi's website.

;) 

Yes, ATi and AMD have merged, but they still have separate websites. AMD is still www.amd.com while ATi is now ati.amd.com.

:p

Intel Core2Duo based laptop or not at least ASUS was smart enough to use ATI Mobility Radeon X2300 rather than the craptastic Intel IGP. :wink:

the 2300 is a misnomer since it doesn't support DX10 and is based on the 1x00 architecture!

....duh. It's their chipset. I have an ATI chipset mobo with an e4300 on it at home. No big deal. It's not like AMD has piles of CPUs laying around that they desperately have to get rid of. It's not like they have a high profit margin on most of their CPUs either. No reason to not sell chipsets that support intel CPUs. More money for AMD. They payed how much to acquire ATI and you expect them to just throw one of ATI's latest projects in the garbage? :roll:

I guess AMD was like "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em!". :mrgreen:

Hmmmm. I wonder if they offer a version with an Nvidia graphics solution. :wink:
