FUD Zilla reports AMD will introduce the 785G IGP chipset tomorrow, this new chipset is aimed at Windows 7 mainstream PCs and has DirectX 10.1 support. It supports AMD Socket AM2+/AM3 and has support for both DDR2 and DDR3 memory.
A DirectX 11 IGP is still far away and we don’t expect it before sometime next year. The graphics in the AMD 785G is based on the RV620 core. It has 40 shaders and it will be branded as ATI Radeon HD 4200, something that we wrote about many moons ago.

The GPU supports DirectX 10.1, UVD 2 GPU enabled and ATI Stream technology for faster video transcoding and application performance, when supported. The new chipsets brings DisplayPort support to chipset as well as HDMI 1.3 and the board is going to be accepted by many partners.
