AMD 690 series chipsets to launch in February
I had originally planned to put this review in the next edition of the Daily Button, but I stumbled across something that a few of the DIYers out there might be interested in. AMD's next mobo chipset, the 690 series will include IGP based on ATI's tech. More importantly, there will be HDCP HDMI connections available.
From the article:
This ATI/AMD RS690 G chipset integrates an ATI X700 ( reportedly four pipeline, DX9 compatible) series graphics core, and supports socket AM2 AMD Athlon 64 processors, DDR2-800 RAM, PCI Express x16, x4, Serial ATA II, Gigabit networking and Azalia compatible HD Audio. The rest of the specs indicate that this chipset is going to give the nVidia Geforce 6150 a real run for its money, and to be frank, we can't wait to test Biostar's little micro-ATX board out!
