NVIDIA's next-generation single-chip socket AM2 chipset revealed
Memos sent to
reveal new details of NVIDIA’s upcoming
single-processor chipset. This will be NVIDIA’s first HyperTransport 3.0, or HT3, compatible chipset and a successor to the current
nForce 500-series MCP
and the upcoming AMD
will support AMD’s socket AM2 and HT3 enabled AM2+. Socket AM2+ will house AMD’s upcoming
Unlike the nForce 590 SLI, the upcoming
is a single-chip solution similar to the previous nForce 3-series, mainstream nForce 4-series and nForce 500-series. It will also offer a small footprint and have low power consumption.
will also be NVIDIA’s first PCIe 2.0 equipped chipset, making it ideal for next-generation PCIe peripherals and graphics cards. Other notable
features include support for six SATA 3.0Gbps and dual Gigabit Ethernet ports like the current nForce 500-series.
As with all NVIDIA chipset architectures, expect
to spawn SLI and Ultra variants. There’s also the possibility of

RE: How is this better than the 500 series?

Couldn't agree with you more. What are these guys thinking? To be a highend chipset, it should have at least 10 SATA-II ports. If two are going to be used by optical drives, that will still leave us 8 for a decent RAID subsystem and a couple eSATA. Six may be good enough for mass market for now, but it is not good enough for the enthusiasts. Also, how come no one is offering IEEE 1394b? There have been add-on cards for this for years. Apple has it. There are also several external drives (Maxtor One Touch III 1TB and WD My Book Pro) that can benefit from this interface. I'd expect it to be built into the motherboards already. Just because Microsoft doesn't support it natively doesn't mean that the chipset manufacturers shouldn't. Come on guys. I don't need 10 USB ports. Give me the 10 SATA and 1394b, and I can live happily with 8 USB. Finally, I hope nVidia will do a better job QA'ing their stuff next time. Their 680i chipset didn't leave us with a good first impression. A lot of people are still gun shy about it, cause you just don't know whether it will work or not.
