    Laptops and 800 x 480- Which graphics chipsets can do it?

    Hi guys,

    I am helping my friend with a Car PC based on a laptop and he has looked on ebay for a damaged laptop we can use. He really wants 800 x 480 since seeing it running on my Xenarc screen.

    I was wondering which laptop graphics chipsets can run at this resolution? A look through ebay has turn up a few Sony Vaio laptops without screens. The ebay selection of laptops have a few different graphics chipsets.

    Which of the following would be his best bet for 800 x 480?

    - nVIDIA GeForce4 420 Go (16Mb)
    - ATI Radeon IGP 345M (Up to 128Mb)
    - Intel Extreme Graphics 855 (32Mb)
    - ATI Mobility Radeon 7500C (32Mb)

    Thanks

    The nVidia will.
    I don't believe the Intel will.
    I don't know about the ATI.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    I have nVidia GeForce 4 440 go in my laptop, I've been trying to get it in 800x480, are you sure all nVidia's can? I've tried powerstrip as well.

    My shuttle Car PC uses the Nvidia Nforce 2 chipset and that displays 800 x 480 no problems. Confusing!

    Don't mind if we have to use Powerstrip to achieve the resolution. The auction finishes very soon so I am keen to get some answers before it does.

    Thanks

    the intel wont do it (at least I can't get it to)

    |V1 Virtual Display|

    Hard work often pays off over time, laziness always pays off right now.

    Latop graphic chipsets are A LOT DIFFERENT from normal chipset. There's no guarantee for anything. Your chance is pretty slim.

    My Sony Vaio did support that resolution though.

    Ended up not getting the Sony Laptops - the price went to high.

    Any opinions on this one:
