ATI has launched the new Radeon Xpress 1100 series of chips, supporting AMD's new mobile processors.

The chipset includes integrated graphics which is capable of supporting the top-end graphics engine in Windows Vista. ATI also claims that it will provide 'industry-leading' battery life.

The 1100 supports DDR2 for AMD's Turion 64 X2 processors, the 64-bit low-power, dual-core Athlon wannabes. ATI claims that its new chipsets will deliver a 'leading-edge mobile computing experience'.

Notebooks using the chipset are going to be available from many major manufacturers, including Fujitsu Siemens, Gateway and HP.

ATI says that the integrated graphics, which support Direct X 9, are fully a third faster than its previous integrated graphics chipsets.

Is integrated graphics OK for notebooks or would you insist on discrete? Let us know your thoughts over in the forums.
