ATI next mobile chip is M98

RV770 mobile

AMD plans to introduce an RV770-based mobile chip and this should take place in late Q3, if not in Q4. The RV770 chip already has some power optimzsations and it can be ready for notebook use, but the current issue is that ATI’s new chip with 800 Shaders tends to get rather hot.

Radeon HD 4850 gets hot and the mobile version will definitely end up with more modest clocks, and it will only fit in quite thick desktop replacement notebooks.

M98 is the codename and ATI simply continues its rather simple naming scheme as the mobile RV670 ended up as M88.
