Next-gen nForce series revealed
HKEPC has the scoop (in Chinese, bring a translator) on NVIDIA's next nForce core logic, which should start showing up on Socket AM2 motherboards this June. The new chipsets, dubbed nForce 550
(MCP55S), nForce 570 (MCP55-Ultra), nForce 570 SLI (MCP55P), and nForce 590 SLI (C51XE+MCP55PXE), are intended for mainstream, performance, SLI, and dual x16 SLI implementations, respectively. The nForce 570, which will replace the current nForce4 Ultra, is reported to have six 300MB/s Serial ATA channels, dual Gigabit Ethernet, High Definition Audio, and RAID 5 support. More details are expected on Thursday, when NVIDIA will officially unveil the new chipsets.
