Chipmaker AMD has unveiled its first chipset combining graphics technology from its purchase of ATI last year.

The vendor launched its AMD 690 series chipset last week, which incorporates its CPU and platform technology with features from the ATI Radeon X1250 GPU.

AMD is pushing the platform as allowing users to maximise the graphic-intensive features of Microsoft’s Windows Vista operating system and said it was also the first family to support ATI Avivo technology, which focuses on video and image display quality.

The 690 series also has integrated HDMI and a separate DVI output for transmitting video and audio signals, and has on-chip HDCP (high-bandwidth digital content protection) support.

“With its leading image quality and 3D graphics capabilities, the AMD 690 series chipset is a proven performer, easily handling the demanding workloads of today’s PC users,” said Phil Eisler, general manager of AMD’s chipset division.
