Stockholm — February 28, 2007 — AMD today introduced the AMD 690 series, the company’s first chipset to bring together the combined strengths of AMD CPU and platform technology with the industry-leading features of the ATI Radeon X1250 GPU. The launch of the AMD 690 achieves an important milestone in the company’s drive to bring innovative platform products to market, a strategic cornerstone of AMD’s acquisition of ATI.
“This is a customer-centric platform solution that allows for our partners to achieve a clear product differentiation,” said Thomas Stenberg, spokesperson for AMD in the Nordics and the Baltics. “The AMD 690 series chipset gives our partners the flexibility to design compelling solutions for the home and office.”
The AMD 690 series incorporates ATI Radeon X1250 graphics into its design to ensure the ultimate Windows Vista experience. Multitasking between applications has never been easier with Windows Aero, the new visually-rich 3D user interface built into Windows Vista Premium and Business editions.
Working together, AMD’s chipset, CPU and GPU hardware and software teams have optimized the AMD 690 platform to provide rock solid stability and image quality as certified by AMD’s Validated Solutions program. As part of the AVS program, commercial customers adopting the AMD 690 will enjoy timely, long-term support ensuring maximum return on their IT investment. Further, commercial customers will appreciate the energy efficiency design of AMD 690-based platforms, in a compact package suitable for multiple form factors and configurations, supporting up to four monitors with the addition of a dual-DVI ATI Radeon graphics card.
The AMD 690 family is the first AMD chipset with ATI graphics that supports ATI Avivo technology, providing the ultimate visual experience with smooth video playback and true-to-life images for all multimedia, including high definition content. The AMD 690 series also provides more display choices than any other chipset today, being the first chipset with integrated HDMI and a separate DVI output.
