By Advanced Micro Devices The second generation, ATI RADEON-based graphics solution for notebooks, MOBILITY RADEON 7500 offers revolutionary performance for the avid 3D gamer, or the professional. The Mobility Radeon 7500 was a mobile graphics chip by ATI, launched in December 2001. Built on the 150 nm process, and based on the M7 graphics processor, in its M7-CSP32 variant, the chip supports DirectX 7.0. Since Mobility Radeon 7500 does not support DirectX 11 or DirectX 12, it might not be able to run all the latest games. This is the most recent driver I've come across so far, and since ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 is listed among the drivers in the CX98765.inf file that comes with this driver pack I'd expect my adapter to be fully supported: 'ATI MOBILITY RADEON 7500' = ati2mtagM7, PCIVEN1002&DEV4C57. ATI MOBILITY RADEON 7500 6. The second generation, ATI RADEON-based graphics solution for notebooks, MOBILITY RADEON 7500 offers revolutionary performance for the avid 3D gamer, or the professional looking for workstation-class graphics they can use in their notebook.
External VGA port
Works fine with open-source drivers. It turns on automatically when an external display is present. It can also be used for dualhead with Xinerama (with different resolutions on both screens) or MergedFB.
The SVideo port should be supported by the current Xorg radeon driver.

Initially, ATI did not produce Radeon drivers for Linux, instead giving hardware specifications and documentation to Direct Rendering Infrastructure (DRI) developers under various non-disclosure agreements. The proprietary Linux drivers don't support the R100 chips (Radeon 7000-7500).
As of 2006.09, with Debian Sid (X Window System Version 7.0.0) i have 3D acceleration, without any proprietary or GATOS driver. Kernel version is 220.127.116.11.
It is reported that 3D Acceleration works fine with DRI driver under Fedora Core distribution, with the configuration similar to R300.
If you are using Hardy Heron Ubuntu 8.04 then use the following device and relevant sections of my xorg.conf, I have xcompmgr running smoothly.Video runs smoothly too.
PLEASE EDIT THE GARTSize option to reflect the amount of system RAM you have available for your card.
Linux driver - proprietary
ATi's proprietary Linux drivers support only the R200/FireGL graphics chips and above. The Mobility Radeon 7500 is based on the R100 graphics chip; the only Linux driver available for this chip is the open-source radeon DRI.
