Default nForce 700 series

NVIDIA plans to unleash new nForce SLI chipsets for AMD and Intel.

Intel: nForce 780 and 750 series. The Intel variants are based on C72 XE and C72 P and named nForce 780i SLI and 750i SLI.

AMD: nForce 780a SLI and 750a SLI, based on the MCP72 XE and MCP72 P.


New features to the nForce 780 series include:

(1) Three PCIe x16 Gen2 support with SLI. NVIDIA will cater the nForce 780 series to enthusiasts. The lesser nForce 750 SLI solutions only support two PCIe x16 Gen2 slots with eight-lane signaling.

(2) Additionally, NVIDIA has one more Intel chipset variant slated for January of next year. The new NVIDIA nForce 790i SLI is an Intel only chipset with support for DDR3 memory. NVIDIA hasn’t revealed much details on this chipset.

Nvidia is getting ready to release Tri-SLI technology as the big thing in graphics and it is preparing it for this month (November). Tri-SLI will be introduced together with the nForce 700 series of chipsets.

The 780i for Intel platforms and the 780a for AMD's AM2+ processors will both feature three x16 PCI-Espress slots and will be the high end offers that support the Tri-SLI technology which will become available for GeForce 8800 (and maybe G92) cards. Another Intel chipset, codename C73 (780i is C72) will also support Tri-SLI but its release date is expected for Q1 2008.

Why no X32 support? Although we haven't hit the bandwidth wall yet, it seems kinda weird that motherboard that isn't even released yet won't be utilizing it.

I don't know, but the preliminary specs don't impress me much on the nForce 780. It's like a carryover from what we have now, lol with Tri-SLI support and continued 45nm CPU support for Penryn. These motherboards won't be cheap either....whew.

The 780i might be delayed because of the Penryn delay this December instead of November.

nForce 780i has Penryn issues, delayed until December?

Look at this thing




Comparison: Not much difference besides Tri-SLI, lol

Looks like it. PCI-express version 2.0 still running at x16 (PCI-express x16 graphic card slot that is), but I hope it's at least full x16 on each interface. YET, no DDR3 on the 780i!!!!!!! You'll have to get the 790i, lol. HORRIBLE!!!!

On AMD rigs, the processor controls the ram, not the chipset. This is why their is no DDR3 support.

Intel are always the one to adopt next gen RAM earlier than AMD. The Intel uses that 780i chipset though while AMD is using a variant 780a. Ha, lol. The "i" on the 780i stand for Intel while the "a" on the 780a stands for AMD, lol.
