NVIDIA never leaves mobo business, preparing MCP82


Recommended Posts

This came from Expreview

Recently some rumors have it that NVIDIA are going to quit mobo business, but according to the roadmap, they are not quitting the job. What?s more, currently they are working at a MCP72 successor: The MCP82.

MCP82 is a Performance/Enthusiast segment chipset, supporting the upcoming AMD AM3 CPU. (also AM2+ and AM2 is supported).

It is a IGP chipset with graphic core built inside, supporting Hybrid SLI and CUDA applications. Currently we only have limited information about the chipset, the only spec we gathered is in the chart.

The chipset is foot-print compatible with MCP72, so we can expect mobo coming out with similar design. Sample chipsets have been already sent to NV partners, and final revision of the chip will enter mass production stage in January 2009.

I'm still curious if they are ever going to attempt another run at SoundStorm and the Audio MCP again. They really should partner up with C-Media and get a few PCIe Audio cards on the market and some new motherboards with high-definition audio that actually has hardware accelerated audio.

I am very sorry to say, but hardware-accelerated audio is dead and Microsoft killed it. Microsoft requires that each new Vista-running PC be shipped with an audio codec that is supported by its UAA class driver, which basically means either an HDA codec or USB speakers.
