NVIDIA Next Gen. PCIe 2.0 GPU & MCP In Nov

NVIDIA is also going to launch their next generation PCI Express 2.0 SLI chipsets for both Intel and AMD processors together with the next generation enthusiast GPUs known as G92 in November. There are C73 and C72 chipsets for Intel supporting 45nm Yorkfield and Wolfdale processors and MCP72 for AMD supporting AM2+ Phenom processors. The main difference between C73 and C72 is the support of higher FSB and memory type where C73 supports 1600FSB and DDR3-1600 and C72 supports 1333FSB and DDR2-1066/800.  There are 2 variants to each series of SLI chipset; XE and P where XE supports 3 x16 SLI priced at US$150+ and P supports 2 x8 SLI priced at US$100-120. Only MCP72 series can support Hybrid SLI. C72 early samples will be available to customers by end of July where mass production slated for October. MCP72 early samples will be available by August with MP targeted for November. C73 will arrive later where early samples targeted for November and mass production in December. So we can expect MCP72 and C72 to be on target for launch together with G92 in November.
