Submission + - AMD 690 Series IGP Chipset Launched

MojoKid writes: AMD has taken the wraps off their first product in the chipset arena since the acquisition of ATI last year. Here is a preview look at AMD's new 690 series chipset with integrated Radeon X1200 graphics. Poised at taking on NVIDIA's long since mature nForce 430 chipset, AMD has provided a competitive new offering in the IGP space it seems. The RS690's integrated Radeon X1250 sports a 400MHz, 128-Bit graphics engine, is Direct X9 compatible and has a maximum resolution of 2048x1536 with 32-Bit color. In addition, both VGA and HDMI outputs can run independently and its HDMI interface supports the 1.2 specification as well as HDCP 1.1.

A computer without COBOL and Fortran is like a piece of chocolate cake without ketchup and mustard.
