A whole new AMD chipset

The AMD 780G chipset combines powerful integrated graphics, an improved SB700 south bridge and support for Athlon X2 and Phenom processors to offer by far the best IGP solution we have seen yet. And Hybrid CrossFire might just make 780G worth while for more than you might think.

No no, this time we MEAN it.  For reallys.  The X48 chipset is coming in mid-March, according to Intel according to Digitimes.

Intel has informed motherboard makers that it will
definitely launch its X48 chipset in mid March, two months later than
its original launch date, according to industry sources. The X48
chipset was originally slated for launch in January, but Intel pushed
it back as inventory of X38 had yet to be cleared, the sources said.

AMD to push the RS780 chipset into China

Subject: Chipsets | January 16, 2008 - 11:39 AM |
Tagged:

Digitimes seems to think that AMD is delaying the release of the RS780 chipset due to delays in the driver for Hybrid CrossFire.  To counter the delay they are going to release it in China first, where apparently no one cares...?

The end of classic VIA chipsets

Even though we more or less KNEW this was coming, it is sad to see the official end of an era over at VIA.  According to this Digitimes report, the chipset division, responsible for such masterpieces as the KT266A and KT133A, is being bundled in with the CPU division.

NVIDIA MCP72 chipset delayed

NVIDIA is getting all the headlines this morning, though maybe they don't want to.  Digitimes is reporting that the MCP72 chipset, otherwise known as the nForce 700 series for AMD platforms, is being delayed until the first of next year.  Being as it is now December 28th, this makes sense, no?  Still bad news is bad news.

X48 chipset possibly delayed

This is interesting news considering that we had at least one motherboard partner attempt to send us an X48-chipset motherboard this month.  I say "attempt" because the board didn't show up because "sales took it back" or something.  Perhaps then that is indicative of this delay on the chipset?  Perhaps Intel didn't want to piss off the motherboard vendors that bought tons of X38 product quite yet??

Intel was originally going to launch the X48 c
