The GeForce 6150 and nForce 430 is updated as "MCP68" GeForce 7050 and nForce 630a, now a single-chip design
NVIDIA has another chipset in the works – the
GeForce 7050 and nForce 630a
, also known as
. The new GeForce 7050 and nForce 630a will arrive in time to compete with AMD’s upcoming
hit a snag
and has yet to launch in mass quantities unfortunately.
Although the GeForce 7050 and nForce 630a appears to be a brand new chipset, its feature-set is similar to current GeForce 6150 and nForce 430 offerings. It does feature a GeForce 7-series derived graphics core, as with the
series, though the
-family carries the GeForce 6100 moniker.
NVIDIA’s new GeForce 7050 integrated graphics core features native HDMI and DVI support. Integrated HDCP keys allow the GeForce 7050-series to display protected video content, when connected to an HDCP compliant display of course. PureVideo HD video processing is supported for hardware acceleration of VC-1 and H.264 video formats. It is up to motherboard manufactures to decide the video output capabilities of a GeForce 7050 IGP based motherboard though.
Although GeForce 7050 and nForce 630a based motherboards feature a GeForce 7-series IGP, there is still plenty of expansion options such as a single full-speed PCIe x16 slot. Other notable features of the GeForce 7050 and nForce 630a combination include dual-channel DDR2-533/667/800 support, PCIe x1 & PCI slots, high-definition audio, ten USB 2.0, four SATA 3.0Gbps ports with RAID and Gigabit Ethernet.

The thing is, is that there is no real difference between the GeForce 6 architecture and the GeForce 7; they have basically identical feature-sets. At launch the GF7 appeared to introduce transparency anti-aliasing which the GF6 did not support, but it turned out the GF6 also supported transparency AA once they enabled it in the 91.47 and later drivers. As such, GeForce 6 and 7 cards should really all be grouped together as the GeForce 6/7 generation and only differentiated by performance.
So whether they call it the GeForce 6100 or 7050 is irrelevant as they both mean the same thing; a very low performance model of the GF6/7 generation. At least they lowered the model number from x100 to x050 when they moved it from the GF6 to the GF7 group.

geforce7 runs cooler (many don't even have fans) and has h264 acceleration, a very important feature.
