    So far I have used

    ATI Mobil Radeon Xpress 128mb shared - Great Support using the basic windows drivers in Beta 2, it was widescreen too and the support was there.

    X1650 Pro 512MB

    X1900XTX 512MB - VIVO fully functional as of Catalyst Driver 7.6

    Hi,



    I run vista on my Dell laptop, it has a Mobile Intel 915GM/GMS, 910GML Express and this works just fine. It doesn't support the aero and glass features of vista, but for everyday useage works fine.



    If you have one of this chipset in your machine, i advise to update to the latest drivers:



    http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scripts-df-external/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=1862



    This update will make the card register as a 64mb instead of 128mb, but theres is a noticable differance in the visual performance of vista after using these drivers.

    ATI X1650 Pro 512MB

    Works like a charm if you download new drivers.

    ATI x800 xt works great, as does 9700Pro. 64 Bit Vista. The x800xt doesn't do HD video well, though. Upgrade coming next week! :)
