The initial offerings consist of ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3400 series and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3600 series. AMD showed Legit Reviews both of these cards and we snapped a couple quick pictures of the MXM cards below.
First up was the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3400 MXM card.
The next one we got to see was the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3600 series and as you can tell the MXM PCB is the same, but the core is different. The ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3600 series uses faster GDDR3 memory has more stream processors and is significantly faster than the Radeon HD 3400 series.
