NVIDIA to produce full-featured Atom chipsets

Based off MCP7A and MCP79

| CPUs, Chipsets & SoCs News | Posted: Dec 17, 2008 3:21 am

VR-Zone has been given the heads up that NVIDIA are working on a chipset for Intel's Atom processors. This will be based off their existing MCP7A chipset and although it is somewhat unncessary for this type of platform, it will in fact carry across SLI support with the ability to offer two PCIe x8 links.
