NVIDIA GeForce 6100 and nForce 430 to be renamed

Posted on Friday, February 16 2007 @ 04:03:26 CET by

NVIDIA is going to rename its GeForce 6100 chipset to GeForce 7050 and the nForce 430 will now be known as the nForce 630a.
Nevertheless, NVIDIA has given the existing MCP61P GeForce 6100 and nForce 430 chipsets a new GeForce 7-series and nForce 600-series name. Under the new naming scheme, the single-chip MCP61P GeForce 6100 and nForce 430 is reborn as the GeForce 7050 and nForce 630a.

New name aside, the GeForce 7050 and nForce 630a are identical to the GeForce 6100 and nForce 430. While it may appear the GeForce 7050 does not deserve a GeForce 7-series designation, it is in fact a GeForce 7-series derived graphics core as previously reported. However, the performance of the MCP61P was abysmal and undeserving of the GeForce 7-series name and thus carried the GeForce 6100 name.

NVIDIA’s GeForce 7050 integrated graphics core features an sDVO connection for enhanced video output capabilities. PureVideo video processing is unavailable on GeForce 7050 IGP, unfortunately. It is up to motherboard manufactures to decide the video output capabilities of a GeForce 7050 IGP based motherboard. Depending on how the sDVO connection is used, motherboard manufacturers can equip motherboards with DVI, TV-out, component video out and/or HDMI outputs.
