NVIDIA chipset for VIA Nano in Q1 2009?

TC Mag claims the NVIDIA chipset for the VIA Nano processor won't be ready until Q1 2009:
Aimed for the mini-ITX market and likely posing as a threat to Intel's Atom-based platform, an Nvidia chipset with DirectX 10 integrated graphics and support for the first iterations of the Isaiah architecture is in the works but apparently not expected to soon.

Said to be based on the Centrino 2-prone MCP79 chipset, the Nano-ready chip is reported to arrive only next year, in the first quarter. These's not much info about it yet but we can expect its IGP to kick the transistors out of Intel's 945GE chipset.
Hopefully this "green" chipset from NVIDIA will use less power than the northbridge Intel ships with the Atom processor
