AMD's 690G/V Series Chipset Coverage

| CPU, APU & Chipsets News | Posted: Feb 28, 2007 10:46 pm

As mentioned here a short while ago, AMD have kicked off a new breed of IGP based motherboards, these being the 690 series available in two variants.

 

Slowly but surely coverage is starting to hit the web with benchmarks and comparison tests, as per the links below (i'll make sure to update it as more related coverage surfaces).

Hot Hardware:-
With no major processor architecture updates in the immediate future and their DX10-capable graphics solutions still a few months away, the new AMD seems to be slowly picking up slack as we roll through the first two thirds of Q1 '07. Today, AMD is officially introducing their first new chipset since the ATI acquisition, the AMD 690G/V Series. Comprised of an RS690 Northbridge and SB600 Southbridge, the 690 series chipset's goal is to provide a full-featured motherboard backed by a solid integrated graphics solution, thanks to an integrated ATI Radeon x1250 with AVIVO support. What makes the 690G unique, at this point, is its support for VGA and DVI or HDMI, depending on the model, which enables the chipset to be attractive to both business and multimedia users looking for a quality video experience. With its integrated Radeon x1250 clocked at 400MHz and the ability to share up to 1GB of system memory, AMD looks to provide a versatile board that can fill a multitude of needs at a competitive price point.
