As expected, ATI Technologies Monday delivered a yet another version of its ATI RADEON 9100 IGP core-logic with improved specifications and performance. The introduction has potential to solidify the company’s position on the market of chipsets with integrated graphics.

ATI’s new RADEON 9100 PRO IGP chipset is basically a superset of the famous RADEON 9100 IGP core-logic unveiled last year. The novelty boasts with improved dual-channel memory controller that allows better memory performance and flexibility, in addition to some improvements in AGP 8x performance field. Thanks to the revamped North Bridge architecture, the new RADEON 9100 PRO IGP delivers faster performance over predecessor.

The new ATI’s chipset fully supports all Intel’s processors in 478-ping packaging as well as LGA775 packaging with up to 800MHz Quad Pumped Bus.

To stay in-line with other chipset makers in terms of I/O capabilities, ATI Technologies is also expected to offer a new South Bridge with its RADEON 9100 PRO IGP chipset as well. The new IXP 320 I/O chip will sport 2 Serial ATA-150 ports, 8 USB 2.0 ports, RAID capability in addition to features provided by today’s South Bridges from ATI.

In addition to the launch of RADEON 9100 PRO IGP, ATI will also introduce a value-oriented, single memory channel integrated graphics platform, RADEON 9000 PRO IGP.

The official launch of the RADEON 9100 PRO IGP will take place at Gartner’s System Builder Summit in Barcelona, Spain on May 5, 2004. Launch partners for the event include such industry leaders as Gigabyte, MSI, Sapphire, Shuttle PC, FIC, Jetway and Soyo.

Availability dates of the new RADEON 9100 PRO IGP-based mainboards are not unveiled at this time. Later this year ATI Technologies is expected to deliver some more advanced core-logic products with new capabilities and possibly DirectX 9.0 integrated graphics.

A review of the ATI RADEON 9100 PRO IGP is available at AnandTech web-site.
