Cool Goodies from AMD

Advanced Micro Devices is coming up with cool goodies, announcing them in CeBit fair in Hannover, Germany.

First up is the 780G chipset with integrated ATI 3200 GPU. This is great as I am looking to upgrade my AM2 motherboard to AM2+ (and eventually to quad-core Phenoms, from my current Athlon X2), and the new ones with the new chipset look awesome (reviews here and here).

AMD also announced that it will release the 45-nm version of its quad-core CPUs, Barcelona (for servers) and Deneb (for desktops) in H1 2008. The company also announced the availability of a low-power (45 watts) 2.5GHz Athlon 4850E X2 dual core processors.

New Catalyst drivers for ATI Radeon 3800 series graphics cards will be available tomorrow. The Catalyst 8.3 supports CrossFireX, a multi-GPU configuration that can pair up to 4 video cards.
