Coming out of Canada today is the ATI Radeon Xpress 1250 Chipset. This Chipset is designed for use on Intel PCs and notebooks, and is also geared for delivering a new level of graphics performance. Another fact about this Intel Chipset is that it's the first to support ATI's Avivo (Advanced Video In Video Out). The press release can be found here. As mentioned in our review of the ATI Linux 8.28.8 drivers, the onboard graphics for the Xpress 1250 are supported by the most recent proprietary drivers.
