Clean single-chip design
Single-chip, GeForce 6100 GPU with AM2 support

DailyTech previously reported NVIDIA was releasing a new integrated graphics chipset with the name MCP61S. The new core logic is a single-chip solution is set to replace the current GeForce 6100 and nForce 410/430 combination. Epox has revealed specifications on its MCP61S based board. The mATX Epox MCP61S-M features an integrated GeForce 6100-series graphics processor with support for the recently released AMD socket AM2.

As it’s designed for AM2 there are four 240-pin DDR2 DIMM slots with support for DDR2-533/667/800 modules in dual channel configurations. One PCI Express x16, one PCI Express x1, and two PCI slots are available for expansion cards. Audio is provided by a Realtek ALC883 high definition audio codec. Strangely the MCP61S-M only supports six-channel audio while the ALC883 supports up to eight channels.

I/O options are severely limited with the Epox MCP61S-M. There’s only one parallel ATA133 port and two SATA II ports with support for RAID 0, and 1. Nonetheless for a small mATX system the I/O ports should be plenty sufficient. Lastly the MCP61S-M is limited to a 10/100 Mbit Realtek RTL8201CL PHY.

Epox has yet to comment on product availability and pricing, though the NVIDIA roadmap shows the MCP61S making an appearance around August and pricing should be similar to current GeForce 6100 boards if not cheaper.
