Default AMD's new RS780 IGP and SB700 pictured

As you can see below, the chipsets are really tiny, although they're not quite as small as the discrete AMD 790 series - the good thing is that both still only require passive cooling. The north bridge is HT3.0 and AM2+ capable, and outputs include HDMI, DVI and even the new DisplayPort (with HDCP encryption to boot). Avivo support has been upgraded and should also mirror the capabilities of the latest Radeon HD 3000 series graphics cards .

There are also various rumours about the IGP performance, whether it's faster or slower than what Nvidia has to offer may depend on the use of a local frame buffer, for which Gigabyte hasn't integrated here. In fact, we don't expect many, if any motherboard makers to use this option as they never have done before. However, with new Hybrid CrossFire support linking IGP to low end GPU, this may be set to change.
