ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 is DX11 on the Go

AMD was first to the market with its DirectX 11 desktop part, and now it's also the first to the mobile space with the introduction of the ATI Mobility Radeon 5000 series: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5800, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5700, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5600 and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5400.

This top-to-bottom family of notebook graphics will also bring ATI Eyefinity multi-display technology to the portable space.

As Loyd Case points out in his coverage of CES, AMD’s product numbering scheme is a little confusing as the Mobility Radeon HD 5870 has half the shader units of a desktop-class Radeon HD 5870. AMD insists that "5800" means it's the fastest of its class, not that the name itself with it carries any quantifiable information.

Earlier this week, AMD announced that it extended its Vision branding initiative to businesses with the "Vision Pro Technology" banner, which aims to help businesses "increase productivity and gain competitive advantage by enabling visually stunning communications, marketing and sales materials."

    if this doesnt solidify ATI as the leader i dont know what will. and as for nvidia it will take them another year or so just to get fermi small enough to even think about going into the mobile space so you can count them out of the mobile market for that time.
