ATI to roll out DirectX 9 integrated graphics chip

— 9:11 AM on May 8, 2003

It looks like ATI is aiming to release a DirectX 9-compliant integrated graphics chipset by early next year. The new integrated graphics core could surface as early as the end of this year, but given that ATI has yet to launch its DirectX 8 IGP, 2004 may be a more realistic target.

Whether NVIDIA will have a DirectX 9 IGP of its own to counter ATI's upcoming core logic chipset remains to be seen, but since NVIDIA lacks a chipset license for Intel's Pentium 4 processors, integrated chipsets from the two graphics giants may not compete directly with each other.
