ATI releases RS600 and RD600 chipsets for DDR2-1066 support

More delicious ATI news from Computex, recently both ECS and ATI have been showing off the capabilities of the new RS600 and RD600 chipsets, the chipsets ATI promised a short while back that would bring Conroe support for enthusiast boards. Supporting an absolutely massive DDR2-1066 speed, the RD600 has real promise as a potential performance/overclockers board, especially considering that even the latest Intel boards are only starting to support DDR2-800 (the standard still being 533/667 for them). Wonderfully enough, they will also allow independent overclocking the memory bus, a common sign of an enthusiast board. The RD600 also supports a rival technology to LinkBoost called XpressRoute.
