AMD Launches New Series Chipsets For China

While the whole world has gotten the Radeon HD 3400 and 3600 series card, AMD's latest releases, the first chipsets with integrated graphics of the series 7 line-up have only been unveiled in China. The move comes so as to get the new boards powered by the chips on the massive Chinese market and leave everyone else waiting until AMD has Hybrid CrossFire all figured out and ready to work with its new cards.

The launch 'party' introduced three chipsets - the AMD 740G, 780V and 780G, all supporting AM2 and AM2+ processors but boasting quite some different features. The lowest end part, the 740G with the Radeon 2100 IGP will only support DirectX 9 and HyperTransport 1.0 while its bigger brother, will both have DX10 capabilities, HT 3.0 and even PCI-Express 2.0.

The 780V will lack the UVD or Hybrid CrossFire, both being features that only the 780G will be able to brag with. The new chipsets are expected to make their world wide debut before the end of the quarter.
