AMD 780G Chipset Preview - Gigabyte MA78GM-S2H Evaluated
A whole new AMD chipset
The first chipset to come from the combined ATI/AMD company was the 690G; a pretty basic but impressive entry into the integrated graphics market for AMD processors that offered good gaming performance while maintaining low power consumption. Next AMD unleashed the 790FX chipset for enthusiasts aimed at the Phenom processor and multi-GPU systems - unfortunately the Phenom processor hasn't caught on as quickly as AMD had hoped and because of that the 790FX chipset is laggard as well.
With this generation, previously known as the RS780 and now officially called the 780G chipset, AMD is upping the ante on the integrated graphics market by leap frogging the competition in many areas. Come see why this release might have you rethinking using an integrated GPU in your next system build.

The AMD 780G pushes the boundaries of chipset performance and efficiency well beyond what competitors Intel and NVIDIA currently offer.
