Another RS690 Delay

lol. such issues are why AMD kept out of the chipset business in the first place, imho. Now look how well they handle it....horribly! this should have been done a LONG TIME AGO. boards are already designed and beta-tested with this chipset....by more than one OEM...pretty sure I've seen EPoX with one too...

Someone needs a spanking for not doing thier job. I vote for $1000 fine off of pay!

RS690 is a chipset, as I understand it. It works in conjunction with the SB600 south bridge, and appears to possibly be a drop-in replacement for the RS485/Radeon XPress 1100 chipset. It evidently includes an X700 derived graphics core.
