It's been a long time coming after the code was tied up in AMD's legal department for months, but AMD finally pushed out the CoreBoot support for their RS780/SB700 Chipsets yesterday. This free software BIOS implementation should now work on these newer AMD-based motherboards and are just the most recent of a growing list of supported chipsets by CoreBoot. AMD had promised this support many months ago but finally they cleared the legal requirements to push this code out to the general public.

The patches that provide the AMD RS780/SB700 support can be found on the project's mailing list.
