No, I haven't heard a thing about them. Not even notebookcheck.net has anything on them and they are usually pretty ahead of the curve when it comes to these things.



Yeah, that really wouldn't make sense since ATI released a pretty complete 5000 series for laptops. Based on info from ATI's site, it just looks like a refresh of the 4000 series though I'm not sure why they would bother with releasing more DX 10.1 cards at this time.....

Yeah, that's what I was getting at. It seems to be a random rehash of old tech with pretty much nothing new to offer. They still use DX 10.1 after all...... :sleep:
