And so we lived to see the day when AMD announced a chipset for Intel processors. It is an integrated chipset based on RS690 and its Xpress 1250 graphic core can run Vista aero glass just fine.

Read the full story at The Inquirer: 

The chipset supports Intel Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Extreme, Intel Pentium 4, Pentium D, Pentium Extreme Edition, Celeron, and Celeron D processors and Front Side Bus (FSB) speeds 533, 800, and 1066MHz. It can address up to 16GB memory and has 128-bit dual channel memory interface. It supports a bunch of video acceleration stuff, such as Enhanced MPEG-2 hardware decode acceleration, which claims to dramatically reduce CPU use without incurring the cost of a full MPEG-2 decoder and provide the basis for platforms with H.264 support.
