In navolging van AnandTech heeft ook Sharky Extreme een kritische blik geworpen op de ATi Rage Mobility 128, een 3D graphics chipset bedoelt om de notebooks wat gaming power te geven. Naast redelijke framerates in Quake III kan de Rage Mobility 128 overigens ook zeer aardig overweg met DVD codering. Hieronder een hap uit de conclusie:
It has been a long time in coming, but mobile gaming is finally a reality. Overcoming graphics limitations has been difficult, but ATI has finally created a part that delivers plenty of memory, a low heat output, and offers a compelling reason to take up a large chunk of hard drive space with a full Quake III installation.
There are still several control issues out of ATI's realm (like playing Quake III with a touchpad), but we make due with what's available, right? If the price difference doesn't prove to be astronomical, we'd definitely recommend opting for the 16MB version, as the 8MB model may result in a bit of texture swapping.
Although there haven't been any product lines announced around the Mobility 128 yet, we've been assured they are right around the corner. Because the chip can be outfitted with either 8 or 16MB, it won't be exclusive to the high-end laptops either. Granted, performance isn't equivalent to that of a desktop, but ATI's Mobility 128 takes the crown in the mobile market. The bottom line is despite the established stereotype claiming that mobile gaming isn't feasible, ATI is here to emancipate the masses and show us otherwise.
