NVIDIA intros chipsets for new Opterons


— 12:28 PM on August 15, 2006

NVIDIA has introduced a trio of core logic chipsets to go with AMD's new Opterons. The chipsets include the nForce Professional 3600, 3050, and 3400 media and communications processors (MCPs.) The 3600 and 3400 both offer 28 lanes of PCI Express connectivity and many of the same goodies found in the latest desktop nForce 500-series chipsets, including SLI multi-GPU technology support, six 300MB/s Serial ATA ports with onboard RAID 0, 1, 0+1, and 5 support, and dual Gigabit Ethernet MACs with hardware TCP/IP acceleration. The nForce Professional 3600 can be combined with the 3050, enabling a total of 56 PCI Express lanes, 12 Serial ATA ports, and quad Gigabit Ethernet ports. NVIDIA says its current nForce Professional MCPs are used by HP, IBM, and Sun, but it doesn't reveal those companies' plans for the new chipsets.
