More AMD RS780 info turns up

This time with a chipset diagram


HKEPC has gotten their hands on a chipset diagram of the upcoming RS780 IGP chipset from AMD, and it confirms our earlier reports about its upcoming features, such as the return of the local frame buffer.

An interesting note about the local frame buffer is that it will differ from previous attempts in one major way:  it will support DDR2 and DDR3 memory and if this can be in large enough quantities, this should be one of the best IGP solutions around.

The chipset will also feature a new UVD engine and this should offer 100 percent CPU off-loading for certain video formats.

The RS780 will apparently launch in January next year as the AMD 780G chipset, and AMD will make one final spin which will bring the chipset to the A12 revision before it launches.

Motherboard partners should have samples by the end of next month or early December.
