3 new IGP chipsets launched in China this week, with the rest of the world set to see the products around March 5 of this year.

The new chipsets include the AMD 740G, the AMD 280V, and the AMD 780G. The AMD 740G chipset, with ATI Radeon 2100 graphics, is compatible with the RS780, but only supports up to DirectX9, PCI Express 1.1a, and Hypertransport 1.0.

The two versions which comprise the RS780 series, the RS780 and the RS780C, target different markets. AMD has indicated that the RS780 version is aimed at a mainstream demographic, while its counterpart targets lower-end markets.

AMD has additionally announced that one more chipset, the RX780H, will launch later this year. They have indicated that this new chipset will be pin compatible with the RX740, RX780, RD780, and RD790 boards. There has also been further talk of a 2009 release for the RD890 and RX880 chipsets, sources have noted.
