Which is better the ATI Mobility Radeon X2300 HD or the NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150?
Thanks in advace
The 2300HD receives better benchmarks, and I believe better actual results.
The ATI Mobility is without a doubt much better.
-NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150-
# 3DMark03: 1200 points
# 3DMark05: 630 points
-ATI Mobility Radeon X2300 HD-
# 3DMark03: 3325 points
# 3DMark05: 1571 points
The Nvidia chip also has a clock speed of 450 Mhz, whereas the ATI mobility has at least a 475 clock (I'm assuming its the same if not higher as the older model)
This would also seem to suggest that it may be possible for DX10
ATI Mobility Radeon X2300
X1300 with another name, DirectX 9, PCI-E, later maybe a DirectX 10 Version (HD)
Hmm.. after more checking, turns out I was wrong, only DX9 support, Drat...
I humbly request a link to said information. I was under the impression that Radeon X2300 HD was a hybrid between the 2300 HD and the X1300; hence, best of both worlds? Please give me the link to that if possible, thanks!
The link you're asking for was included on the link that MarkT provided. Here is the final link. It seems to me that the X2300 HD is just an X1300 with a different name.
Edit: Here is a better link at ati.amd.com stating that the ATI HD X2300 only supports DirectX 9.0.
Edit: Here is some more discussion on the topic.
Even if the X2300 HD was capable of DirectX 10 with the new specs released by microsoft almost any card that was capable is now not.
Anyone know what the HD X2300 does on 3DMark06?
"945 3dmarks for 3dmark06
Halflife 2 plays perfectly with 4xAA trilinear filtering at 1200x800 (widescreen) at an easily playable and steady 35+ fps. (shadows at max and reflect set to world).
Quake 4 runs fine (once OpenGL was installed fully under vista, it was difficult considering that the original driver didnt come with it...).
I play all my lan games on it and they all run fine, from CS source to.. well World of Warcraft."
I believe this is what you are looking for.
Separate names with a comma.
