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.

This is with DDR2-533 RAM, the cheap and safe choice for office systems.
Why in the world are you still using DDR2 533? 667 has been going for the same price as 533 for ages now and I've seen zero stability difference between the two.

I've been burned a couple of times using DDR2-667, so I now default to DDR2-533 for non-perfomance critical systems (you know, regular run-of-the-mill office systems). I have no doubt that a BIOS update couldn't have fixed the problems I encountered, but the fact was there was no fix at the time. In both cases swapping in DDR2-533 solved the problem. For the miniscule additional performance, DDR2-667 hasn't been worth the potential headache so far.
You're right that the price has largely equalized now, so perhaps I shouldn't have said 'cheap'.
