Nvidia today followed up last week's desktop GeForce FX 5600 and 5200 launch with the introduction of two mobile versions.

The GeForce FX Go 5600 and GeForce FX Go 5200 both mirror their desktop equivalents. The 5600 is fabbed at 0.13 micron, the 5200 at 0.15 micron. While the 5600 delivers Nvidia's IntelliSample anti-aliasing technology, the 5200 does not.

The 5200 sports a 350MHz RAMDAC, and two LVDS channels for notebook displays at up to UXGA and wide-UXGA resolution, and DVI support for external 1600x1200 LCD screens. The 5600 has a 400MHz RAMDAC.

Both mobile processors offer DirectX 9 support, operate over an AGP 8x bus, and feature Nvidia's PowerMizer power conservation system.

Both parts are already sampling and will ship in volume next month. Pricing has yet to be announced.

Design wins include thumbs-up from Quanta, Wistron, Medion, Toshiba and FIC, manufacturers of the bulk of the world's name and no-name notebooks. ®
