Digitimes reports: "AMD has released its 690 series chipset, the company's first chipset to bring together the combination of the AMD CPU platform and the graphics capabilities of the ATI Radeon X1250 GPU.
AMD president and chief operation officer (COO) Dirk Meyer noted that the company's largest customers are already committed to offering AMD 690 series-based solutions, and more than 30 motherboard designs will be available.
The AMD 690 series chipset incorporates ATI Radeon X1250 graphics into its design, with the company claiming the chipset delivers the power to make new Microsoft Vista features such as Windows Flip and Windows Flip 3D an integral part of every business day, AMD added.
The AMD 690 family is the first AMD chipset with ATI graphics that supports ATI Avivo technology, which supports high-definition content. AMD said this AMD 690 series chipset also provides more display choices than any other chipset, being the first chipset with an integrated high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) and a separate DVI output. Protected content can also be played through on-chip high definition content protection (HDCP) support."
