Offering powerful performance improvements to the Mac lineup, these new graphics options, which include the MOBILITY RADEON 9700 and the RADEON 9200, provide Mac users with the high-end graphics experience they expect from ATI and Apple.

Continuing ATI’s leadership in the mobile sector, the 15- and 17-inch PowerBook G4 notebooks will feature the new MOBILITY RADEON 9700, the world’s fastest mobile graphics processing unit. ATI’s MOBILITY RADEON 9700 uses Low-k process technology to reduce the strain on battery life and at the same time provide accelerated performance. The MOBILITY RADEON 9700 sets a new standard for processing power in a notebook, which enables users to perform a wide range of graphics functions, ranging from gaming, to digital video editing.

The overwhelmingly successful eMac, geared to educational customers and consumers, will now be powered by the RADEON 9200, enabling first class graphics at a low, entry-level price. With a quad pipe architecture, eMac users will enjoy compelling 3D content and gaming.
