ATI is apparently planning to launch its RX480 chipset for Athlon 64 processors before the end of the month. RX480 will feature PCI Express, at least for graphics, but it's unclear whether the chipset's south bridge be ATI's IXP 300, or a new chip with PCI-E support.
ATI is hoping to become the largest supplier of PCI-E chipsets for the Athlon 64 within a year, although the company will surely face strong competition from NVIDIA, SiS, and VIA. We may not see many enthusiast-oriented boards based on the RX480, though. The RX480 is apparently targeted at OEMs and the channel/clone market.
