Review : Introduction to Jetway PA78GT3 AMD RS780+SB700 mainboard
Bluetooth 22 Jan 2008

Introduction

 

Last year, in Jan 2007, AMD/ATi has a successful launch of their integrated DX9 graphics core, the RS690. The chipset performed well and had a good head start against it's competitor the NVIDIA MCP68 series. In fact, the RS690 or AMD 690G has created a miracle in 2007 as one of the most successful integrated chipsets for the AM2 platform.

In 2008, the same is about to repeat with the introduction of the AMD RS780 or AMD 780G in China on the 23rd of January (other regions will be in March). Although it will be introduced earlier, drivers won't be ready till February to support Hybrid CrossFire X.

At this moment, we can see that the RS780 is an improvement over the RS690 (AMD 690G) in a few ways. First, it supports DX10 and runs at a higher clock. Secondly, it will support Hybrid CrossFire, allowing the integrated core to work in tandem with an add on graphics card to speed up graphical performance.

Jetway PA78GT3 will be one of the first boards available in the China market on the 23rd Jan 2008.
