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...?

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.

Upcoming battles between the IGP chipsets from AMD, the RS780, and NVIDIA, MCP78S, are apparently leaning towards AMD for performance. This is all according to motherboard makers in Taiwan.

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.

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

Lots of new Chipsets
Come take a look at what Intel's latest chipset offerings bring to the table, what technology moves they make and what is coming down the road this summer.
The New nForce 650i Ultra
NVIDIA released a new chipset based on their 600-series for the Intel platform. The new 650i Ultra chipset does not support SLI but has a lot of other interesting features for a ~$120 motherboard.

An interesting link came into my inbox this morning with the tag line "LinkBoost" and it pointed to the NVIDIA.com website. Here on the Tech Specs page for the nForce 600 series chipsets, if you scroll ALL the way to the bottom, you'll see this note:
**Note: NVIDIA LinkBoost™ technology has been removed as a feature from NVIDIA nForceÂ® 680i SLI
Well, that's a surprise. If you remember
