Beyond3D has posted a preview of ATI's upcoming Radeon 9100 IGP with Dual Channel DDR-400, AGP 8x and Hyper Threading support but only 533MHz FSB support for the Pentium 4 line.

Much of the configurations of RS300 follows that of Intel's own Springdale chipset, with a Dual DDR 333/400MHz memory bus. At present ATI do not have an 800MHz FSB chipset license, meaning that although 400MHz DDR RAM can be used the CPU FSB will still be limited to 533MHz. Sources indicate that the chipset is fully capable of supporting and 800MHz FSB but its just a question of timing with the license - in other words, watch this space.
