has taken a look at a notebook featuring the ATI X700 Mobility part to see how it stacks up as a gaming machine. 

As well as comparing the performance of the Mobility Radeon X700 with relatively freshly taken scores from the desktop X700 PRO and X600 XT we’ll also compare it against the previous performances of the Mobility Radeon 9800 and X800, where we can. Bear in mind that the scores for the other two notebook parts may not be up to date as we are just re-using the performance numbers from when we originally looked at them, as we no longer have these systems, and the drivers may not be the latest available – however, as the onus is presently on the notebook vendor to qualify and make new drivers available it has often been the case that this doesn’t happen with anything close to the frequency that ATI updates their reference drivers.
