AMD delivers a new mobile chipset today, the AMD M690. This chipset features a built-in ATI Radeon X1200 series GPU.
“With AMD’s graphics engine expertise and our mobile processor leadership, AMD delivers a cohesive mobile platform for commercial and consumer customers that demand the Windows Vista Premium experience on the go,” said Phil Eisler, corporate vice president and general manager, AMD Chipset Division. “AMD CPU and GPU technologies work in tandem to deliver increased battery life for mobile workers and consumers who demand a superior graphics and multimedia experience wherever the road takes them.”

To ensure longer battery life, the AMD M690 incorporates innovative memory technology known as Display Cache, designed to allow the CPU to operate in low-power mode without accessing system memory. This platform-level innovation coupled with the energy efficient processor design of AMD Turion 64 X2 dual-core mobile technology extends battery life by up to 30 minutes over previous AMD mobile technologies.

The AMD M690 is powered by the ATI Radeon X1200 series graphics processor, delivering seamless access to any of the visually rich features found in Windows Vista and strong gaming performance. As the first mobile AMD chipset to support ATI Avivo technology and integrated HDMI and DVI connectivity options, the AMD M690 series provides smooth video playback and vivid images for all multimedia applications, including high-definition content.
