Chile Hardware got their hands on some details about the upcoming RS780 chipset from AMD.

This mainstream HyperTransport 3.0 chipset will feature an integrated DirectX 10 GPU and will support new AM2+ processors like the Greyhound. This chipset is expected in the first half of 2008.

My Spanish isn't really great but it looks like this chipset will support two displays, TV encoder, DVI/HDMI with TMDS and DisplayPort.
