Because of Hybrid SLI, NVIDIA mainstream market strategy is now facing a big change. The new chipset, MCP7A-H, have been canned before it enters the market. Because it is lack of integrated graphic, can not meet the needs of NV's recent changed strategy.
But instead of canceling, 730i will keep exist and have new chipset, the MCP7A-S. In other words, MCP7A-S will have two names, one is GeForce 9xxx (still can not conform its name) and the other is 730i. The GeForce 9xxx is a uATX form factor mobo, with less PCI, PCIe and other expansion slots. 730i is a ATX mobo and has more expansion slots.
