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 MCP68. The new GeForce 7050 and nForce 630a will arrive in time to compete with AMD’s upcoming RS690-family. AMD’s RS690 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 MCP61 series, though the MCP61-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.

RE: Not quite like ATI

I've read nvidia is making a Intel IGP. It's probably better to spend it's resources in market that it has no IGP in. I have a 6100 mobo and have found it laking. It's too slow to use any of the good features. I have to run just about any game at lowest settings to get lousy FPS. That rig is just for internet. I do hope to see faster IGPs in the future. Maybe nforce Intel IGP will be a pleasant surprise?
