Alongside the launch of their new GeForce 8800 masterpieces today, NVIDIA have also lifted the curtain on a new range of nForce chipsets for the Intel platform. The new nForce 600i Family comprises three models in the nForce 680i SLI, 650i SLI and 650i Ultra.
If you haven't read it already, the supporting press material is combined with G80's at the NV press room. And although the coverage isnt anything like that of G80 right now, there's still a few dedicated articles on the nForce 600i chipset family as linked below :-
FOR MONTHS, ENTHUSIASTS WAITED for a version of Nvidia's high-end nForce 590 SLI chipset compatible with Intel's Core 2 processors. That chipset finally arrived in October aboard Asus's P5N32-SLI Premium motherboard, but not before Nvidia hinted that a new nForce 680i SLI was just around the corner. Now, less than a month later, we've turned that corner to find the 680i SLI riding a motherboard built by Nvidia itself.
Chipset manufacturers usually produce a reference motherboard design to help their partners bring products to market. When the nForce 590 SLI chipset launched for Socket AM2, Nvidia worked with Foxconn to make its reference design a retail board. This time, Nvidia has taken things one step farther, designing and manufacturing its own nForce 680i SLI motherboards for sale to its partners. Some of those partners, including Biostar, BFG Tech, ECS, EVGA, and XFX, have been so impressed with the design that they'll be offering it as-is.
