Just called up Futureshop...They said 9000IGP...really strange, they also said it was 64MB when their site says 128MB. I'm looking at the Compaq Presario R3055 BTW.

EDIT: IGP just means it's not AGP. Most 'mobility' chips are still IGP.

|Out of hte box, I hit low 7000's on 3dmark 2001 and could nearly squeeze 8000 out of it. The difference between the 9000IGP and the mobile Radeon is night and day and isn't even something that subject to debate. Whoever says otherwise hasn't read the #'s nor have they used it before....|
