ATI adds Radeon Xpress 1100/1150 to the table

ATI has announced its latest core logic chipsets for AMD's AM2 platform. Two new chipsets are being announced for AM2: the Radeon Xpress 1100 and the Radeon Xpress 1150. Also new is the SB600 series southbridge which offers support for ten USB 2.0 ports, four SATA-II ports, RAID, HD Audio and legacy support for PATA devices. Native Command Queuing (NCQ) is also present on the southbridge. The SB600 southbridge supports both AMD and Intel platforms.

The Radeon Xpress 1100/1150 IGPs feature a Radeon X300 graphics core clocked at 300Mhz (Xpress 1100) and 400MHz (Xpress 1150). Up to 128MB of memory can be allocated to the GPU thanks to ATI's HyperMemory technology. The GPU is fully DirectX9 compliant and features support for Vertex Shader 2.0 and Pixel Shader 2.0 so support for Vista Aero Glass is assured. Other niceties include SurroundView technology which allows for up to three monitors to be used with an accompanying ATI graphics card, dual independent displays (CRT/LCD, TV/LCD), DVI support and an integrated TV encoder. The Radeon Xpress 1100 series features one PCIe x16 link and four general purpose PCIe x1 links.

ATI's CrossFire Xpress 3200 chipsets carryover for Socket AM2 platform. We should expect to see motherboards featuring Radeon Xpress 1100/SB600 within the next month.
