Portable Graphics Power

Hardware New graphics processing units (GPUs) from ATI Technologies and NVIDIA are providing better than ever performance for CAD and visualization programs on a laptop computer.

Cadalyst has posted a review of the new graphics chips. For the review, Cadalyst ran the ATI Mobility Fire GL 7800 and the NVIDIA Quadro4 500 Go GL graphics chips through the Cadalyst C2001 Benchmark in AutoCAD 2002, the MAXBench for 3D Studio MAX v.3.1, and the ViewPerf ProCDRS-03 test component that checks basic video performance.

The overall winner was the NVIDIA chip. It should be noted that the NVIDIA platform had a slightly faster processor (P4 2.0GHz vs. P4 1.7GHz), but that the NVIDIA chip still seems to be the faster chip for now.
