Last week at CES 2007 AMD showed off a working ATI RD690 based motherboard with HDMI:
RD690 is AMD’s upcoming chipset with integrated graphics and native HDMI support. The new chipset should be able to cope with Vista just fine. We will try it as soon as we get our hands on it.

AMD also showcased a lot of integrated boards from its partners so they are set to blast off RD690 soon. We expect to see first boards in late January, early February time.

We saw live demonstration of HD quality video running on the board. It outputs the signal via HDMI port integrated on the board. The fun part is that the chipset works in notebooks as well so you can expect some notebooks with such a graphics.
The RD690 features a Radeon X700 based integrated graphics core.
