    The HD4200's 3D part is r600 based so probably does not support OpenCL with the proprietary driver.

    The exist some socket AM2+ mobos with DVI+DisplayPort output (the latter shared with PCIe x16 as agd5f said). But no AM3 mobos have DisplayPort.

    Unlike AMD chipsets, NVidia mGPU allow to simultaneously use DVI, HDMI and PCIe. And GPU compute.

    There isn't much demand for dual digital on IGP boards, so VGA and DVI are separate so you can use them for dualhead if you want. On the IGP chips the secondary digital transmitters share pcie pins, so you'd lose the x16 slot if you enabled the secondary digital ports. There are some IGP boards with dual digital outputs, I've got two of them.

    I am sure some anyway out there would say, that 32x80 characters is enough for anyone?

    Just out of curiosity. The 890 IGP is this small chip what is passive cooled, but the R800 GPU huge and very actively cooled.

    Are the differences purely clock frequency and memory?
    A little OT, but WHY aren't there any boards with integrated dual-DVI??? (I can see on that one the boring and predictable DVI+VGA plugs) There's no reason to put an old analog VGA plug on them since VGA can be hijacked off the analog pins on a DVI, so WHY???!?!?! I (and I know a lot of others as well) want basic workstation graphics along with the simplicity of IGP, but that actually supports dual monitors, and VGA most definitely does NOT COUNT -- I simply can't take the wavey lines and weird interference patterns.

    I thought 785G was code-named RadeonHD4200..
    The 890G will probably have a 5x00 codename, no?

    So it can do OpenCL

    We're getting pretty predictable anyways
    hehe. It would however be interesting to hear about Evergreen drivers, now that Asus have a product
