AMD’s new SB700 will support a number of innovations previously not available from AMD and other developers of chipsets. The main highlights of the SB700 I/O controller is support for consumer infrared port, TPM (trust platform module) support as well as HyperFlash technology. Infrared support will help the new platforms from AMD, such as code-named RS780, to become more popular among consumers and multimedia enthusiasts, whereas support of TPM and HyperFlash (a technology similar to Intel NAND) are likely to be welcome by business and enterprise customers.
AMD SB700 will support 6 Serial ATA-300 ports with RAID capabilities, external-Serial ATA, Parallel ATA/flash controller, high-definition audio controller, 12 USB 2.0 and 2 USB 1.1 ports, PCI interface and so on.
