AMD launches 785G integrated graphics chipset

By Jos

  1. AMD has begun shipping its newest chipset, the 785G, to OEM partners today. As the name implies, there is very little separating 785G from its 780G predecessor, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The new chipset boasts a Radeon HD 4200 graphics processor complete with DirectX 10.1 support. The number of stream processors and clock speeds remain the same, however, thus gaming performance remains mostly unchanged – not that you would want to do some serious gaming using an IGP, anyway.

    Its good to see AMD unfolding their production a bit. It only bodes well for the future.
  3. I will stick with Intel, thanks! Although the AMD products run well , they burn up real easy!
    I find them far less durable and poor overclockers too. My Athlon 770 black edition @2.7 stock
    barely made 3.0 before it crashed and died! My Intel E2180 pentium dual core @2.0 stock
    easily oc to 2.7 by putting multi at 10 and mhz at 270 ! ot runs way cooler rarely crashes while overclocking, and is still running today. My AMD sits awaiting CPU and PSU!! wow only 3 months old , both built with same parts,

    Rare to very rare in the shops... Perhaps they are less solid gamer machines, but we actually find them a little better for reliability as general use home and office machines. There is really nothing wrong with an AMD machine... and for the money and the average student, home, or office user, you get your money's worth.
    After all, the high failure eMachines, Packard Bell of GB, Tiny, and a few others are Intel machines, not AMD.
    Personal choice counts for a lot... but otherwise the perpetual contest between Intel and AMD really depends on the video graphics card, the CPU cooling, and whether you have an onboard or PCI ethernet card.
