AMD Launches 780 Chipset

AMD is announcing the availability of the AMD 780G chipset, designed to deliver the ultimate mainstream computing experience.

The new chipset enables leading global OEMs and system builders to design PCs that provide users with full HD and best-in-class 3D graphics performance, enhanced scalability and rock-solid stability for mainstream gaming, multimedia and commercial PCs.

Gamers will appreciate the detail-rich images and dynamic interactivity when playing the latest DirectX 10 games.

Additionally, ATI Hybrid Graphics Technology is achieved by utilizing AMD’s new integrated chipset, the 780G and one of the ATI Radeon GPUs.

ATI Hybrid Graphics Technology utilizes one video card plugged into the PCI-Express slot and is able to join forces with the GPU built into the motherboard chipset to scale graphics performance. This allows game play at higher resolution, higher frame rates and higher image quality in 3D games, improving the gaming experience.

Pretty impressive for integrated graphics... On Tom's they OC'd from the 500Mhz stock to 900Mhz LOL!!! Considering the innate overclocking potential and it's ability to unload the CPU by having complete HD video decoding support it would make a nice board for a low-profile HTPC rig.

The 55nm fab process also makes it the most energy efficient chipset out there.
