M59 is Mobility Radeon X1900

It was not hard to get this one as M58 was the codename for the still
unannounced Mobility Radeon X1800. We have seen this chip more than once already
but we don’t know about any design wins. You can expect that the M59 gets the
Mobility Radeon X1900 name. It will be faster than any NVIDIA laptop chip, at
least until NVIDIA introduces its mobile variant of G71. It will be fast and that
it will be just slightly warmer than M58.

Ed’s note : We have posted the mobile GPU roadmap here
before revealing the Mobility Radeon X1900 of a different codename. We will
check back on our sources again and hopefully we can get more information
regarding this part.
