NVIDIA MCP55 chipset almost ready

Posted on Monday, February 27 2006 @ 22:40:38 CET by

The NVIDIA MCP55 chipset for AMD's upcoming Socket AM2/S1 platform will soon be ready, according to Taiwanese sources.
Unfortunately, MCP55 is a far cry from a revolutionary chipset. According to NVIDIA roadmaps, it contains a different audio codec, dual Gigabit Ethernet PHYs and can use six SATA channels instead of four, but the core logic is still hampered by the fact that it takes two chipsets to control a 2x16 SLI setup. The debate is still out as to whether or not 2x16 really becomes useful for SLI anyway, but adding two Northbridges to the motherboard to enable 2x16 seems like an incredible waste of money (particularly when the interconnect between the two bridges is slower than the actual x16 PCIe bus).
