AMD's RS690T, SB700 notebook chipset: details emerge

Details of AMD's next-generation South Bridge chip, the SB700, have leaked out. With them, the chip maker's plans for its latest notebook reference platform, codenamed 'Trevally' - designed, it seems, to take Intel's 'Santa Rosa' Centrino head on. The gen comes via a Spanish-language report at ChileHardware. Apparently, Trevally comprises the said SB700, the the RS690T North Bridge and a Socket S1 Turion 64 X2 processor.

The RS690T - surely set to ship as the M690 if past hints at AMD's new chipset nomenclature are anything to go by - provides not only an integrated graphics core with access to its own, dedicated DDR 2 graphics memory bank, but also PCI Express lanes for an 8x graphics card connection, a 4x link to the SB700 and a number of 1x links to other add-ins.
