[PCmagazine] AMD Releases New Chipsets with Hybrid Graphics

along with the new Athlon X2 4850e dual core processor.

Today at the CEBIT show in Hannover Germany, AMD (neé ATI) released the 780G and 780V motherboard chipsets, along with the new Athlon X2 4850e dual core processor.

The 780G and 780V chipsets are designed for the burgeoning mainstream gaming and mainstream enthusiast markets, in which the total cost of a system will be in the $750 to $1,500 range, depending on components like graphics cards, memory, hard drives, and CPU. These mainstream gaming systems are capable of playing DX10 games like "Crysis" and "World in Conflict," though of course at a lower screen resolution than high-end gaming systems in the $5,000 class.

The 780G chipset has an integrated ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics along with ATI's Hybrid Graphics technology, which allows you to use the internal graphics along with an add-on graphics card to get better 3D performance. The 780G is capable as-is with multiple-monitor support. The 780G's integrated graphics are DX10 compliant, and capable of outputting DRM-protected HD content to HDCP-compliant monitors.

In the past, if you installed an add-on graphics card, the internal graphics would be disabled. With Hybrid Graphics, the integrated graphics and discrete graphics GPUs work together to give you better 3D performance. AMD claims a 28-to-72-percent increase in 3D gaming performance using Hybrid graphics. The 780G chipset supports PCIe Gen2 for more throughput to the graphics and other expansion cards, as well as AMD Overdrive for user-initiated overclocking. The 780G and 780V chipsets support AM2 processors, including AMD Phenom and Athlon X2 processors.

On the multimedia front, the 780G chipset will support HDMI on the motherboard, making it a prime candidate to build a home theater PC or other digital entertainment system. Up to six SATA ports, 12 USB 2.0 connectors, and dual monitor support without a separate graphics card are also pluses. The 780G chipset consumes only 45W at idle with an Athlon X2 4850e processor.

The 780V chipset is essentially the same, though it substitutes ATI Radeon 3100 graphics, resulting in a chipset for less expensive motherboards. The 780V chipset is less HD oriented, as shown in the graphics subsystem nomenclature.

Motherboards from major manufacturers such as Asus, Gigabyte, Foxconn, and MSI are expected soon. Pricing on the 780G and 780V motherboards are expected to range from $80 to $120.

Last but not least, AMD also released a new processor, the Athlon X2 4850e. The 2.5GHz X2 4850e runs at an efficient 45W (max). The X2 4850e will be available soon at a price of $89.

Where are they getting the $$ amounts from for gameing and mainstream systems! $5,000 is quite an exageration! Even a budget gameing system can be built for under $500! I just built a budget system for $240. All it needed was an 8800GT for $200 more to be a gaming PC!

But is nice to hear AMD coming out with some new products!

when I read the $5000 system part I lol'd as well. $700 and you have a C2D, 8800GT, gaming and OC'ing beast.
