ATI to unveil Athlon 64 PCI-E chipset pair 'this month'
ATI will launch its first Athlon 64-oriented chipset later this month, a company official has revealed, and become the first company to formally announce PCI Express support for the processor.
According to Reuven Soraya, ATI's director of platform product marketing, cited by DigiTimes, the part is currently dubbed the RX480 and it will be fabbed by TSMC using a 130nm process.
RX480 will be a discrete chipset, while the previously rumoured RS480 will be an integrated part, Soraya is reported to have said. That the graphics company is working on a chipset without built-in graphics might seem odd, particularly given the strength of demand for such chipsets from PC vendors keen to cut costs. But since AMD's success in the desktop market is primarily with less mainstream, more performance-oriented users, makers of Athlon-based PCs favour discrete solutions.
