Graphics chip maker ATI on Thursday rolled out a new chipset for notebook PCs with Advanced Micro Devices' processors.

ATI's Radeon Xpress 200M, the latest in a new line of ATI chipsets for 2005, incorporates a graphics processor, along with a PCI Express connection for add-in cards. It also supports Microsoft's DirectX 9 graphics software.

The chipset, whose graphics are equivalent to ATI's entry-level Radeon X300 standalone graphics chip, will allow notebooks to work with AMD's mobile Sempron and Mobile Athlon 64 processors, as well as the forthcoming AMD Turion low-power chip line for lightweight notebooks, ATI said in a statement.

Sharp's Mebius PCXG-70H and Mebius PCXG-50H media center notebook PCs are among the first to incorporate the Radeon Xpress 200M. However, several other companies, including Acer, Gateway and Hewlett-Packard, are developing notebooks around it, as well, ATI said.
