ATI Mobility Radeon HD 500v-series sticks to DX10.1

Over the past few day's we've noticed several upcoming notebooks featuring ATI Mobility Radeon HD 500v GPUs in them, but it wasn't quite clear as to what these were, apart from the fact that they weren't DX11 GPU's. AMD has clarified things to a degree by adding the 530v, 540v and 560v series to its website, just below the Mobility Radeon HD 5165 and 5145, both of which are also DX10.1 GPU's.

Looking at the specifications, all three of these “new” GPU families are built on 55nm, the same as the Mobility Radeon 4000-series. The 530v appears to be similar to the 4300-series with the 540v being close to the 4500-series and finally the 560v fitting into the 4600-series shoes. There appear to be different models of these GPU’s as well, as we’ve seen notebooks with Mobility Radeon HD 545v GPUs in them from Dell.
