    OCWorkbench has some pictures of the first AMD 690G based motherboard manufactured by YingTong. YingTong 690G is the first mainboard that utilises the first AMD named chipset - AMD 690G formerly known as ATI RS690+SB600. It supports the AM2 processors and 4 slots of DDR2-800 memory. Integrated within is the X700(4 pipeline) video with support for DX9, SM2.0 and HDMI out with HDCP. The board also comes with a PCIe slot, 4x SATAII ports(NCQ and RAID 0,1,10 configurations also supported), Realtek RTL8100C GbE LAN and Realtek ALC883 HD Audio chip.

    Perhaps not a very high-end x700? Maybe a special on-board one?

    Careful, ATi. You're ruining bad reputation of the phrase "Integrated Graphics". I wonder how it will hold up in Vista. Sexy.

    Well all of the ATI chipsets have been pretty good overclockers, but this is a budget mobo, primarily for home theater I would guess, so it may have limited O/C'ing options in the BIOS. The X700 integrated graphics should be reasonable but definitely not high-end.

    There will be a lot more new mobos coming with the latest chipsets and hopefully a few of them will actually function properly, unlike most of the crap sold in the past couple years.

    BTW, I never heard of YingTong so I wouldn't be rushing out to buy this board anyway. I'd wait 6-8 months to see what real people using this board get for results, what kind of tech support is provided, what BIOS updates show, and if the company is still in business, etc.

    Yes, I've never heard of them before either. I take this is a mobo for ppl on a tight budget, a 4 pipeline integrated X700 should have about the same performance as an old 9600/X600 perhaps?

    Looks decent. I've been waiting on a high end MATX board for a while for am2 or c2d.
