NVIDIA's "MCP68" Details Revealed

| Posted: Feb 19, 2007 11:02 pm

The DailyTech have sourced heaps of info on NVIDIA's upcoming IGP equipped "MCP68" chipset for AMD AM2. The new chipset packs new high-definition video capabilities and a GeForce 7-series derived integrated graphics core.

 

Get the full scoop on it here.

 


New to the GeForce 7-series derived graphics core are new output capabilities. Unlike the GeForce 7050 and nForce 630a's reliant on sDVO-bus TMDS and HDMI controllers, the new MCP68 integrates HDMI and DVI output capabilities. NVIDIA will integrate the HDCP keys onto the MCP68 itself too, making it an ideal for high-definition television sets.

 

Digital video connections aside, the upcoming MCP68 retains support for VGA D-Sub, S-video, composite and component video outputs for broad display compatibility. Topping off the list of video features is support for PureVideo HD technology for hardware accelerated high-definition video decoding. Video formats supported by NVIDIA's PureVideo HD technology include H.264, VC-1 and MPEG2; however, the MCP68 IGP will only accelerate videos with resolutions up to 720p.
