What will have an IGP included on it though is the RS880D chipset also due in January 2010. The integrated GPU will be based on the RV620 core and will support DX10.1. The RV620 was used in 2008 as the core on the Radeon HD 34xx series of GPUs – so that should give us some semblance of a performance estimate.
Expect to see the SB800 series of south bridge to launch at the same time as the 8-series north bridge chips; unfortunately no information was really provided on what features or enhancements the chips will add.
Finally, the word is out that the 785G chipset will be launching in September of 2009, just a few short months away. We actually already spotted our first 785G motherboard at Computex last week:
We are definitely looking forward to any products AMD can offer that will put them back into the spotlight with enthusiasts and DIY builders. Hopefully these new chipsets will be a good start for the struggling CPU company.
