Why hasn't NV 6150/430 appeared in SSF?

Postposted on Mon Apr 24, 2006 6:30 am

We all know that AMD desktop CPUs are all around better than Intel's, but why has no SSF company paired the Soc 939 with what appears to be the top end chipset? NV 6150/430 is that chipset. Why hasen't it showed up in a SSF barebones system? Is it price, availability, BIOS/driver glitches, reliability or what? Anyone know???

I think it was to little difference to late in s939's life. All of the SFF makers seem to be waiting for AM2 and Conroe.

To be honest, I think Shuttle is behind the learning curve. Unless they have some whiz-bang product ready for am2/conroe, they haven't devoted much R&D to anything semi-modern, which is why the 6150 would be about right for them to be developing/implementing right now.

754 can support Turions, so you can get a low power chip. That is my best guess.

There are plenty of mATX motherboards with the geForce 6150

Shuttle uses the Geforce 4 SLi chip for the SN26p which is good.

You mean, nForce 4 SLI. Otherwise, I'd have jumped all over the GF4 SLI a long time ago (sigh).

yeah nForce 4... I'm not sure of your point though...Isn't nForce 4 the SLi chipset that is made for motherboards?

Granted its not the nForce4 Ultra or anything

lots of MSI boards use it :)
