Motherboards based on the ATi Radeon 9100 IGP chipset from Sapphire and ASUS have reached the shelves. The 9100 IGP is claimed to have support for the upcoming Prescott processor from Intel.

  ATI Technologies’ RADEON 9100 IGP core-logic integrates DirectX 8.1-class RADEON 9200-like graphics core, dual-channel PC3200 memory controller and PSB controller for Intel processors with up to 800MHz Quad Pumped Bus support. Besides, the RADEON 9100 IGP supports external AGP 8x port and can even operate both integrated graphics core and external AGP card to support up to three displays at once.

Sapphire’s Axion RADEON 9100 IGP mainboard employs RS300 North Bridge and IXP150 South Bridge to bring you Socket 478 for various Intel’s CPUs, 2 DIMM slots for up to 2GB of PC3200 memory, two Parallel ATA-33/66/100/133, 10/100Mb/s Ethernet controller, USB 2.0 ports and so on. ASUS P4R800-VM boasts with the same functionality with the exception that its IXP200 I/O controller incorporates 10/100Mb/s Ethernet controller logic from 3Com.



According to Say25 the Sapphire Axion Radeon 9100 IGP is available for $105 and the Asus P4R800-VM for $120 in South-Korea.
