ATI Mobility HD 5870 is quite fast

Beats GTX 260M by quite a lot

According to a picture on Donanimhaber managed to score, AMD's Mobility HD 5870 is quite a beast as it manages a score of P7260 in 3DMark Vantage. This is the top offer from the latest ATI Mobility lineup, and despite the fact that it has nothing to do with the desktop version of the HD 5870 but rather the HD 5700 series, it still packs quite a punch.

When compared to Nvidia's GTX 260M, which manages to score P5240, you can clearly see that HD 5870 Mobility has a bright future in gaming notebooks, or desktop replacements. Of course, it would be fair to compare it to the GTX 280M, but also bear in mind that the Mobility HD 5800 is made in 40nm and should squeeze out a bit more battery life and dissipate less heat.

Asus is the first one to show such a notebook with its ROG G73JH, but we are quite sure that we will see more of them in near future, as Alienware and other manufacturers are yet to come up with their own versions.
