ATI RS600 said to be set to ship as Radeon Xpress 1250

Go-to-market branding revealed

The Intel-oriented version of ATI's RS600 chipset will ship as the Radeon Xpress 1250, it has emerged.

According to a presentation slide posted by DailyTech, the 1250 will be support ATI's Avivo picture-processing system and be pitched at digital-home machines. The slide suggests the chipset will be suitable for Viiv-branded PCs.

The slide touts the technology's "multi-format HD support". The RS600 is known to support the HDMI interconnect and can cope with the HDCP anti-piracy system. Avivo incorporates hardware acceleration for the HD video codecs used by both the Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD formats, along with H.264. The integrated chipset will sport a Radeon X700-class GPU.

The RS600 includes ATI's new SB600 South Bridge, and popped up on an Elitegroup (ECS) mobo at Computex earlier this month. ®
