ATI RS600 chipset surfaces

ECS mobo in the spotlight

High performance access to file storage

Computex 2006 ATI was more interested in mentioning its upcoming RD600 chipset, but that didn't stop a lone LGA775-oriented RS600-based mobo being placed among a host of CrossFire 3200 for Socket AM2 boards the company had on display at Computex this week.

The board, from Elitegroup, has a single x16 PCI Express slot, accompanied by a x1 connector and a pair of old-style PCI slots. There are four 3Gbps SATA ports and the same number of DIMM slots. Alas, there's no HDMI connector, though the mid-range board is expected to boast a Radeon X700-class integrated GPU.

A separate demo rig, this time based on the RD600, proclaimed the new chipset will support "XpressRoute - for best CrossFire experience". Details are scarce, but presumably it's a PCI Express bus auto-overclock facility not unlike Nvidia's LinkBoost. As we reported last week, RD600 is indeed expected to feature just such an automatic overclocking system.

Indeed, the demo system signage proclaimed the board's scope for "massive FSB and memory overclocking". It also pointed to the chipset's Core 2 Duo support. ®
