This is a comparison of chipsets sold under the brand AMD, manufactured before May 2004 by the company itself, before the adoption of open platform approach as well as chipsets manufactured by ATI Technologies (ATI) after July 2006 as the completion of the ATI acquisition.

Northbridges[edit]

AMD-xxx[edit]

Model Code name Released CPU support Fab (nm) FSB/HT (MHz) Southbridge Features / Notes
AMD-640 chipset AMD-640 K6, Cyrix 6x86 66 (FSB) AMD-645 AMD licensed VIA Technologies' Apollo VP2/97
AMD-750 chipset AMD-751 1999 Athlon, Duron (Slot A, Socket A), Alpha 21264 100 (FSB) AMD-756, VIA-VT82C686A AGP 2×, SDRAM
Irongate chipset family; early steppings had issues with AGP 2×; drivers often limited support to AGP 1×; later fixed with "super bypass" memory access adjustment.[1]
AMD-760 chipset AMD-761 Nov 2000 Athlon, Athlon XP, Duron (Socket A), Alpha 21264 133 (FSB) AMD-766, VIA-VT82C686B AGP 4×, DDR SDRAM
AMD-760MP chipset AMD-762 May 2001 Athlon MP 133 (FSB) AMD-766 AGP 4×
AMD-760MPX chipset AMD-768 AGP 4×, Hardware RNG
Most initial boards shipped without USB headers due to a fault with the integrated USB controller. Manufacturers included PCI USB cards to cover this shortcoming. A later refresh of the chipset had the USB problem remedied.[2]
AMD-8000 series chipset AMD-8111 Apr 2004 Opteron 800 (HT 1.x) AMD-8131 AMD-8132 Hardware RNG

A-Link Express II[edit]

A-Link Express and A-Link Express II are essentially PCIe 1.1 x4 lanes.

See Comparison of ATI Chipsets for the comparison of chipsets sold under the ATI brand for AMD processors, before AMD's acquisition of ATI.
