    Default ATI Radeon Xpress 1100

    The description for this card in an Acer notebook is as follows: High-end audio/video: This notebook features ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 integrated 3D graphics with 256MB of shared memory and 256MB of dedicated video memory. This high-end memory is great for more demanding games or video editing.

    Does this card indeed have 256 of dedicated video memory? Am I missing something here? This is for my sons, who play games. Can this handle say, Oblivion, Halo and WOW? Or am I better off with a notebook with the Nvidia 6150 (I know, it's low end but this is a 2nd computer for them).

    Which notebook is this? I've never heard of an integrated graphics card having 256MB of dedicated memory. It wouldn't matter if the card had 128MB or 256MB of dedicated memory anyway since the X1100 is not powerful enough to make use of all that.

    if your concern is gaming, you should look at a low end dedicated part, at the minimum.

    I have 1150 same but 400Mhz instead of 300Mhz. I installed it and could not run well enough to enjoy, I am not a gamer so I uninstalled and never tried anything.

    This does come up more than it should, the MFG make it confusing. They say dedicated what they should say is reserved system RAM, theory is if card has to go to a certain part of mem faster, also less fragmentation than when things are randomly placed throughout the entire system memory. You can set up the amount, something like 16MB to 256MB, whatever you pick the card will double with the extra functioning just like traditional shared memory. I set mine at 128 and it is read by windows as 256MB graphics adapter, which may still even be overkill for this card but better than 512MB. Windows reports RAM memory less whatever you have set aside so in my case 2048-128.

    Pretty sure the Geforce Go 6150 and X1100/1150 can have 256MB dedicated but it is rare. They could easily be wrong as I know there is a 128/384 ded/shared X110/1150.

    It's an Acer on sale this week at Circuit City. I was going to add the link, but their site is down... this is the description, though:

    AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-56
    • 2GB of DDR2 memory
    Built-in WEBCAM
    • Burns DVDs and CDs
    • Built-in 802.11gb wireless
    • 160GB hard drive
    • Windows Vista Home Premium

    Detailed Info:
    Acer Aspire 15.4" Widescreen Notebook PC (5100-5023)

    Mid-size notebook: The Acer Aspire 5100-5023 notebook is a mid-size notebook, with high-performance processing power and entertainment features to rival most desktops. This notebook is equipped to handle demanding applications as well as high-end graphics.

    Dual core/64-bit processing: The 1.8GHz Turion 64 X2 TL-56 has two processing engines that work in tandem, providing much more power than standard 1.8GHz processors. This processor is also capable of processing 64 bits of information at once, twice as much as standard 32-bit processors. AMD PowerNow! technology enhances mobile performance and extends battery life.

    * This notebook features 2GB of DDR2 system memory—enough for all but the most demanding users, gamers and multimedia professionals.
    * Data travels along the frontside bus. The faster the data travels, the faster everything works. This notebook features a 533MHz frontside bus which is fine for everyday computing.
    * L2 caches keep data neat, organized, and nearby so processors can retrieve it quickly. This 2 x 512KB gives the processor a little boost.

    Hard drive: This notebook features a 160GB hard drive with more than enough space for most casual PC users.

    Go wireless: Built-in 802.11gb wireless LAN gives you a fast connection to a wide range of networks and peripherals.

    Burn DVDs and CDs: Enjoy DVD movies, or share your files, music mixes and home movies. You can even burn double-layer DVDs and even DVD-RAM discs—specially-formatted discs that let you drag and drop, or write and rewrite your files up to 100,000 times.

    Widescreen display: This 15.4” widescreen features 1280 x 800 pixel (WXGA) resolution, providing sharp detail and plenty of room for whatever you want to view.

    Microsoft ® Windows® Vista ™ Home Premium: Windows Vista Home Premium is the operating system for homes with advanced computer needs. And Vista Premium features the elegant new Aero interface. You’ll be able to use your notebook more effectively and enjoy new entertainment experiences—all with the benefit of added security and reliability.

    High-end audio/video: This notebook features ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 integrated 3D graphics with 256MB of shared memory and 256MB of dedicated video memory. This high-end memory is great for more demanding games or video editing.

    Media card reader: Seamlessly transfer images from your digital camera, MP3 player or camcorder. This 5-in-1 reader is compatible with xD, Secure Digital, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro and MultiMedia Card.

    Software bundle:
    Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium
    Acer Arcade, GridVista and Launch Manager
    Norton AntiVirus™ (trial version)
    Adobe® Reader®
    NTI CD-Maker™

    I'm still confused!
