| Posted: Feb 10, 2007 11:29 pm

Details of NVIDIA's upcoming MCP72 motherboard chipset have just emerged, this being a new single-chip solution for the AMD AM2/2+ platform.

 

The DailyTech report that this will be NVIDIA's first HyperTransport 3.0 (or HT3) compatible chipset, designed to step over the top of the current nForce 500-series MCP and upcoming AMD MCP68 chipsets. It will also be the first chipset from NVIDIA to allow for the new PCIe 2.0 standard.

 


Memos sent to DailyTech reveal new details of NVIDIA's upcoming MCP72 single-processor chipset. This will be NVIDIA's first HyperTransport 3.0, or HT3, compatible chipset and a successor to the current nForce 500-series MCP and the upcoming AMD MCP68 chipsets.

 

MCP72 will support AMD's socket AM2 and HT3 enabled AM2+. Socket AM2+ will house AMD's upcoming Athlon 64 Agena and Opteron Budapest quad-core processors.

 

Unlike the nForce 590 SLI, the upcoming MCP72 is a single-chip solution similar to the previous nForce 3-series, mainstream nForce 4-series and nForce 500-series. It will also offer a small footprint and have low power consumption.
