I wanna know everything about this chip 😀 Mostly about ATI X1900. Who else uses it in their retro machines? Are there any cons? Any chances of failer here like in GF 8*** series? Best driver version?
I was looking for a laptop with both powerful and compatible videocard for old games and after some unsuccessful attempts (Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Xi 1546, or my final step for an ultimate old gaming machine) I found that ATI X1900 is the best possible thing. Games with paletted textures work well (compared to GF6 that dropped their support), and my favorite Thief II works natively without any fixes with a clear sky, stars, fog, and dithering.
