From the very beginning ATI Technologies will combine its RS300 North Bridge with IXP150 or IXP200 I/O controllers. Later the company will offer more advanced IXP250 chips with its RADEON 9100 IGP. According to preliminary details, the RS300 and IXP250 will cost mainboard makers about $40, however, there are indications that ATI is able to lower the pricing of its chipset to $35 level in order to successfully compete with Intel's i865G. As far as I can tell you, at this time ATI Technologies has serious plans to expand its share in the core-logic market, hence, expect its RADEON 9100 IGP to be affordable.
