AMD to ship ATI chipsets under its own brand

AMD said it would continue to use the ATI brand but it looks like it will only be for the discrete graphics chips. AMD decided to rebrand the ATI CrossFire Xpress 1600 and CrossFire Xpress 3200, according to the latest roadmap. The CrossFire Xpress 1600 will be called AMD 480X CrossFire and the CrossFire Xpress 3200 will be known as the AMD 580X CrossFire.
The ATI CrossFire Xpress 1600 chipset will be renamed to AMD 480X CrossFire. This is the second time the RD480 chipset has been renamed. It was previously named Radeon Xpress 200 CrossFire until ATI changed it to CrossFire Xpress 1600 to match the then newly released RD580 Radeon Xpress 3200 nomenclature. Features of the AMD 480X CrossFire remain unchanged. The chipset still supports two half-speed PCI Express x16 slots in CrossFire with a PCIe link to the SB450, SB460 or SB600 south bridges.
