FUD Zilla claims the AMD RS780 chipset, which will be released as Radeon 3200, features a 65nm RV610 core under the hood:
ATI's chipset group is very happy with this achievement and this is the main reason why Hybrid Crossfire aka Hybrid Graphics works with RV610 / RV620 based cores.

Radeon 2400 series are based on RV610 while Radeon 3450 and 3470 are based on the faster 55nm RV620 chip.

Phill Eisler, corporate vice president and general manager of AMD’s chip division, and Reuven Soraya, the director of marketing, AMD chipset group and their big team should be happy about their selves.

Now we finally know why this chipset is so much faster than the previous IGP from AMD and we heard more than once that AMD's 780G chipset will end up faster than Nvidia’s Geforce 8300 chipset.
