NVIDIA brands new IGP chipset as System Core Logic

Posted on Saturday, October 18 2008 @ 03:20:35 CEST by

FUD Zilla writes about NVIDIA's new twisted idea to change the name of their new IGP chipset. A few years back the graphics firm tried to convince the world that their nForce chips weren't chipsets but Media Communication Processors (MCP) and now they want you to call it a System Core Logic:
When Nvidia introduced Nforce 1, it said to the world that this is a MCP, Media Communication Processor not a chipset and it took Nvidia years to convince people to call its chipset simply MCP.

Now in late 2008 they changed their minds again as MCP is not MCP anymore. The more suitable term is GPU with System Core Logic. This is how company plans to market its NVIDIA GeForce 9400M GPU that is actually an integrated graphics chipset.

New MacBooks have this chipset and this chipset has 16 Shader units and should even do some CUDA. A traditional IGP chipset has a GPU core, memory controller and FSB and inter chip communication in Northbridge, while SATA, USB, sound are in the Southbridge. In Nvidia’s case everything is in a single chip.
