|Both will support HT3 and uses the SB700 south bridge. The new SB700 will support 1 IDE, 6 SAT II, RAID 0,1,10,5, 14 USB ports and comes with GbE LAN. Both chipsets supports HDMI/HDCP. The graphics core used is still undecided but we suspect it should have faster than the current X1250, perhaps a X2400 with less shaders.|
In Q4 2007, AMD will deliver another AMD chipset RS740. The specs of RS740 is very similar to 690G except that the number of SATA II ports is increased to 6 and support 14 USB ports instead of 10. It would probably be the same North bridge + a new Soutb bridge SB700.
