New GeForce 8 series with DirectX 10 graphics coming next year

NVIDIA plans to update its budget AMD chipset lineup with two new GeForce 8 series IGP and an IGP-less solutions – MCP78. The new MCP78 features the MCP78 U with a $70-80 build cost, MCP78 S with a $55-65 build cost and the MCP78 D with $50-55 build cost.

The MCP78 U and MCP78 S feature a DirectX 10 compatible graphics solution with unified memory architecture and PureVideo HD technology for high-definition HD DVD and Blu-ray playback. NVIDIA touts new Hybrid SLI technology for the new IGP solutions, which it claims to boost performance of discrete GPUs.

NVIDIA claims performance boosts up to 40 percent with Hybrid SLI technology. Hybrid SLI technology enables discrete and integrated graphics to work together to provide increased performance. The MCP78 series also supports Hybrid Power technology, which shuts down the discrete GPU for low-power and quiet high-definition video playback.

All MCP78 solutions support one PCIe x16 Gen2 and HyperTransport 3.0. NVIDIA expects mass production of the MCP78 series in December with a January launch.
