We don't have many details about the chipset itself as yet - we know it needs SB600 from ATI to get it up and running. It supports socket AM2 CPUs and as we said yesterday, here this is the only socket to exist after Q1 2007.
The boards will come with dual DDR 2 800 support, PCIe 16X, SATA II support, six channel HD and, Gigabit LAN, additional PCIe and PCI slots.
This might be the first chipset that is really Vista ready. Just wait till it comes down to notebooks as this market really needs a powerful integrated chipset. The target launch is sometime in December.
The boards based on this chipset will also support both VGA and DVI outs but this depends on the motherboard design. The chipset is capable of doing both at the same time. µ
