Soon we can expect the NVIDIA MCP73 integrated graphics chipset for the Intel Core platform. OCWorkbench got their hands on a MCP73 motherboard and ran some quick tests to compare the chip against Intel's G965.

Unfortunately the MCP73 drivers aren't ready yet so they weren't able to provide accurate test results of the motherboard's integrated graphics, instead they plugged a GeForce 8600 GTS in the motherboard.
