HKEPC writes NVIDIA is going to launch its MCP68 IGP for the AMD platform as the GF7000-nF630a. The company should be ready to start volume production of this chip by early April.
Based on the same graphic engine as GeForce 6200, NVIDIA MCP68 hasn’t experienced a great change since MCP61, according to its white paper. MCP68 features 2 Pixel Shader Pipelines, 1 Vertex Shader Engine, and 1 ROP. Thus we don’t expect MCP68 would show more power than the current MCP61. Yet, in this upgraded edition, MCP68 added build-in HDMI connections and HDPC decoding capability, supporting 720p PureVideo HD video processing, giving a similar power to its rival AMD 690G.
MCP68 would have 2 models, including GeForce 7025 nForce630a (MCP68PS) and GeForce 7050 nForce630a (MCP68PV). They only differ on the core speed of the graphic engine, where the former is 425MHz and the latter is 475MHz.
