The Inquirer reveals the NVIDIA nForce 590 will feature support for the Intel Conroe:
When Nvidia launches its nForce 500 series for Intel, you can be certain that it will have no problems with Conroe in the socket. In fact, there are some interesting features that are being prepared. Codenamed Trinity or Tritium, the feature will be actually architecturally named LinkBoost, as it is featured on many motherboard boxes that are currently leaking on the net. In fact, there is a nice performance bonus when running a LinkBoost-enabled graphics cards on nForce 590 instead of running it on i975X or any other upcoming chipset from Intel or other competitors.

975 fast but the ICH7 is a bit dated
and no SLI
965 is nice but lacks the fast memory and optimizations

now with 590 you can get SLI and lots of SATA as well as a memory optimized system

Could be a winning situation along with the many other special features of the 590. Need to see if it's stable and performs in testing but on paper it's appearing up there in the wishlist.
