    Of course i already overclocked it a bit and did sum benching! The card is even dx9 compatible!

    I`ve got #1 because i`m the only one in orb bechin this chip not in notebook. Only 20 of theese were ever made and 5 were given out from the contest! Later the chip was put only in notebook comps. The AGP version of the card was never produced.

    For those who are interested....

    The connector above the S-video output is ATI's LVDS connector. ATI connect LCD panels to the qualification boards through this connector.

    The LEDs on the board and the jumpers/dip-switches are for qualification purposes.

    wertrets pics

    We had planned on doing a little page article on this, but its a little late now hehe.

    ill post wertrets pics, ive taken them down a lot in size, but I left them at a large enough size so everyone could see them in good detail, especially as very few people have seen these cards.

    My apologies in advance for those of you on dialup and probably pulling your hair out by now !

    ATI responded saying the jumpers are for ati internal qualification so they have no funtional purpose for you guys.

    Mobility Modder, It takes the standard catalysts and makes them installable on mobility chipsets, so it should work for this card, check it out here: http://www.driverheaven.net/patje/
