Sources revealed that ATi is planning to launch their RD400 chipset next
month to compete against NVIDIA nForce4 SLI Intel Edition chipset. ATI RD400 is
going to paired up with ULi M1573 southbridge that supports Pentium 4, Pentium D
and Pentium Extreme Edition processors, 1066Mhz FSB, Dual Channel DDR2-667, 6
SATA RAID and Azalia Audio.

Certainly, the most anticipated feature of RD400 is the support for Multi VPU technology or previously known as AMR (ATI
Multi Rendering) where two different PCIe graphics cards can work hand in hand
without a need for SLI-like bridge. ATi RD480 that supports Multi VPU as well will
come in the near future for AMD processors. The 2nd generation of RD400 chipset
coming second half of the year will allow SMA (graphics onboard) to run in
conjunction with an external PCIe graphics card. Certainly the onboard graphics
will not be wasted if an external graphics card is plugged in and both will run
in dual GPUs mode.
