Why do you need the 9 series and onboard? The benefit would be 6gbps sata and usb 3.0, both of which you can get on an 880 board. The 9 series brings BD support, but I don't think many BD users will be needing onboard gpu.

I think AMDs thoughts were, BD+good xfire and Llano + good on-chip gpu

So if you are looking for a good onboard solution, pick up an FM1 system

1) Well... I am fed up with HD42xx graphics, want a step-up in this department.

2) I want to re-use an AM3 processor.

A 5670/6670 card still beats on board processors, no power plug needed. And on chip.

Hey, thanks for your suggestion. Due to power/heat reasons I need it to be onboard.

Anyhow, looks like I need to change platforms for this setup. Really wanted to know some insight info on the subject.

Some of the low profile cards are 20/30 watt if that helps.

For best low power solutions FM1 or LGA 1155 I3 2105 is HD3000 and can be undervolted to "T" specification

Magic - I have an HD6450 in my FS thread cheap if you want to try something low power.

It uses about 15 watts peak according to Techpowerup. I guess that could be based on an average HD6450.

To answer the original question, YES.

AMD won't put any more R&D effort into video-on-the-chipset, it's all on the CPU die now. 880G is as good as it'll ever get.

Problem is, AMD on-die graphics is limited to FM1 at the moment.

w/ Intel, I am more flexible.

That's probably why no reseller has built any 980G boards, it's exactly the same as the 880G.

Probably aren't selling enough to justify the development of a new board.

AMD have been very silent with regards to their chipset roadmap. I am worried, slightly. Looks like AM3+ may as well be their last performance socket. FM2 is the way to go, you reckon?

I think the Focus is all going to be on FM2 and onboard (Edit- On die) graphics.

The days of high end AMD CPU's are most likely dead after AM3+ , which is sad, as I've supported AMD since the Win95 days.

Went Intel as price/performance on sandy is just too hard to pass up
