AMD launches new 40nm graphics processors

The new processors allows notebook manufacturers to deliver graphics horsepower in a smaller ASIC die size

By CBR Staff Writer

Advanced Micro Devices has launched the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4860 and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4830, claimed to be the world’s first graphics processors to harness 40nm process technology.

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) said that the new graphics processors redefine mobile PC entertainment with advanced capabilities including support for the latest Microsoft DirectX 10.1 games, a home theater-quality HD multimedia experience, and energy-efficient features for long battery life at work, at home or at play.

AMD claims that the new 40nm production process allows notebook manufacturers to deliver graphics horsepower in a smaller ASIC die size, giving people access to highly capable discrete graphics ideal for smaller notebooks.

Rick Bergman, senior vice president and general manager for the graphics products group at AMD, said: AMD always seeks to deliver the most advanced, yet relevant technology to our customers. We were first with DirectX 10.1 support, first to design graphics cards supporting GDDR5 memory technology, first with WHQL certified drivers for Windows Vista, first to launch a unified shader architecture, and for the fifth consecutive time, first to launch GPUs based on a new process node. That’s a meaningful track record of reliable execution for our customers.
