Windows 7 DX10.1 ready


AMD is about to launch its new IGP chipset simply called AMD 785G. The new chipset should have exceptional Windows 7 mainstream PC performance and of course it still has DirectX 10.1 support.


A DirectX 11 IGP is still far away and we don’t expect it before sometime next year. The graphics in the AMD 785G is based on the RV620 core. It has 40 shaders and it will be branded as ATI Radeon HD 4200, something that we wrote about many moons ago.

The GPU supports DirectX 10.1, UVD 2 GPU enabled and ATI Stream technology for faster video transcoding and application performance, when supported.

The new chipsets brings DisplayPort support to chipset as well as HDMI 1.3 and the board is going to be accepted by many partners.

It supports AM3 / AM2+socket and many Athlon and Phenom CPUs in both DDR2 and DDR3.

Officially it launches tomorrow, August 4th.
