There is absolutely no possible way.wrxguy said:Does anyone know of a way to get 256 VRAM on a PowerBook???? is this even possible??
maybe this will come into play when the intel chips come, we have no way of knowing. But for now there is no way in the current powerbooks.wrxguy said:I think it might when the intel chips go into play in the next year or so but what about now??
Yup, for example the current Radeon 9650 has 256MB VRAM, which is twice the VRAM as in the Radeon 9600 XT, but the 9600 XT is better than the 9650 (except for its lack of double-link DVI).ChrisFromCanada said:Also just FYI, there is a lot more to a video card than vram.
I think he just meant that we will see a redesigned PowerBook as soon as the Intel processors arrive, which opens the door for better videocards with 256MB VRAM (if these exist).mkrishnan said:Just out of curiosity, what is the connection between the Intel chips and getting to 256MB VRAM? You don't mean 256 *shared* "VRAM" do you?

GPU and Ram cocl speeds!!Koree said:FYI vram isn't all that matters.
Dell also has the Inspiron XPS-2, which is a very alienware-looking thing itself. It uses a 6800 Ultra to get to 256MB. It's a big one too, although it isn't clear how big. Dell just mysteriously states:lopresmb said:in case anyone was wondering HP also has a 2" 10lb'er that has a ATI Mobility Radeon x600 PCI Express x16 with 256MB dedicated memory. Nice idea, but way too big and not a mac . ***but they do exist, even with major name computer brands***
So I'm guessing that a typical config is also much closer to 10 lbs....Weight: Starting at approximately 8.6 lbs. (3.9 kg) - Weight shown is with 9-cell battery and optical drive.
