Our friends at CHW has an

ATI chipsets roadmap
detailing a RS780 IGP chipset with DX10 compatible GPU
in H1 2008. Before that in H2 2007, we will see a RX740+, RS740+ as well as
RD790+ supporting HyperTransport 3.0 technology. Interestingly, RS780 is built
based on 55nm process technology and is pin compatible with RS740+. According to
them, RS780 is an 8th generation IGP chipset from ATi supporting AM2+ Agena and
AM3 Greyhound processors. On the memory aspect, RS780 offers support for DDR2
1066MHz or DDR3 1333MHz. It also support HyperTransport 3.0 as well as PCI
Express 2.0 technology. RS780 has an integrated DX10 Unified Shader RV610 based
graphics core and a side port memory of 16bits where up to 256MB of system RAM
can be employed.

AMD has revealed information about the Universal Video Decoding capability of
the top to bottom R6xx family and thus even the integrated RS780 chipset is able
to provide UVD support. Since there is a dedicated hardware video decoding
function, its performance is basically independent of the GPU 3D engine. It
offers benefits like better video performance and less CPU utilization. RS780
will be paired up with SB700 Southbridge to offer 6 SATA 3Gb/s, RAID 0/1/5/10,
12 USB 2.0 ports as well as Intel Turbo Memory technology.
