AMD wasn't exactly all that specific about exactly when its new ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3000 series graphics chips would actually find their way into some laptops when it announced them earlier this year, but it looks like they're now finally starting to trickle out, with new laptops from Toshiba and ASUS now each receiving a boost from 'em. For Toshiba's part, it's squeezed the lower-end ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470 into its 17-inch Satellite P305 and P305D laptops (pictured at right), with other "select" P305 models also getting the more powerful Mobility Radeon HD 3650 model, which boasts 120 stream processors, a 128-bit memory interface, and 512MB or 1GB of VRAM depending on the system. ASUS also opted for the higher-end HD 3650, with it landing in the company's 15.4-inch M50 Series M50Sa laptop. Needless to say, however, those aren't the only models in the 3000 series, with the even higher-end Radeon HD 3850 and 3870, and 3850 X2 and 3870 X2 dual-core models, apparently also on track, though there doesn't seem to be any word on a release for those just yet.
