ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850 lower clock speeds
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850 has compared to the big one ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 model with lower clock speeds, but is otherwise identical. The DirectX 11 graphics card also manufactured in 40nm process. It has a 128 bits memory bandwidth, and it’s based on RV840 chip, as used in 5750 and 5770 desktop graphics cards.
The ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850 video memory such DDR3, GDDR3 and GDDR5 will be fitted – depends on notebook manufacturers. DDR3 video memory reaches a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850 only a power on par, with an Nvidia GeForce GTS 160M. In contrast, the graphics card with GDDR5 video memory in advance of a performance Nvidia GeForce GTX 280M regions. Type of video memory will change depends on its memory. Desktop graphics card offers the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850 graphics card with GDDR5 VRAM a lower performance than 5750 desktop.
With a power consumption of up to 40 watts, the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850 is built mainly in larger notebooks (17 and 18 inches). Some of them also come in 15 inch gaming notebooks.
ATI HD 5000 GPUs also support the power saving features Switchable Graphics (Intel) and PowerXpress (AMD), which enable an integrated on-board graphics unit to switch.
A new feature of the HD 5000 series is the multi-monitor technology Eyefinity. Apart from professional support solutions for the first time a mobile graphics chip more than 2 external monitors. In theory, HD 5800 series monitors, up to 6 monitors. However, this technology must be supported by each notebook manufacturer. In practice, a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850 graphics card has only 2 – 3 supports external display devices.
