ATI to ship P4 chipset this month - analyst

ATI will ship its RS300 and RS300M Pentium chipsets with integrated graphics this month, Goldman Sachs has told its clients. ATI has held a Pentium 4 bus licence for some time. Back in March, it said it had licensed Intel's Pentium M bus, allowing it to offer chipsets that use the same processor as Intel's Centrino platform.

Officially, the company has said it will release a chipset for the Pentium 4 this summer, and that's it. From the Goldman Sachs report, its clear that two parts are in the works: the RS300 desktop chipset and a mobile equivalent, the RS300M. The former is almost certainly a P4 chipset, but whether the latter has been designed for the P4 or Pentium M remains unclear. Both chipsets will offer DirectX 8.1 graphics using a Radeon 9000-class core.
