AMD introduces DX11 mobility chips

AMD is announcing what it calls "major innovations in the visual experience for consumers and businesses", at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) today.

The ex-chipmaker will refresh its mobile graphics for notebooks, introducing the 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 introduces Microsoft DirectX 11 gaming and ATI Eyefinity multi-display technology.

The ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 graphics line-up represents a powerful upgrade for OEMs to existing and upcoming 2009 AMD Mainstream and second Generation Ultrathin notebook platforms, as well as next-generation “Danube” mainstream and “Nile” ultrathin notebook platforms launching in the first half of 2010.

Earlier this week, AMD announced Vision Pro Technology, a new commercial PC platform brand.
