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.

You are correct. My mistakes. It would seem the complete GeForce 6100 line-up was replaced with MCP61 variants, which is a bit annoying since they kept the same names.

Actually Anh, I was adding additional information to your correction of the OP. I wasn't correcting you at all. The only way you were remotely mistaken was not mentioning that the 410 is the common companion to the old GeForce 6100/MCP51G, but I wasn't being that nit-picky!
Agreed on the naming thing. It's especially confusing that the single chip MCP61P has two names even though it's one chip, and doubly so that the names are the same (or nearly the same) as as the previous MCP51G two-chip set. Add to that the fact that nVidia now has different sets of drivers for the different flavors, and you've got product name hell. The new rename is welcome for that reason alone, and probably should have been done from the beginning.
I still don't see why one chip needs two names though.
