New NVIDIA C51 chipset details revealed
Biostar has released
the specs of its upcoming NVIDIA C51-powered iDEQ 330N small form factor system. NVIDIA hasn't released any details on the C51 chipset or its integrated graphics processor, but we can glean some information from the iDEQ's feature list. Unlike NVIDIA's most recent nForce chipsets for K8 platforms, C51 looks to be a two-chip design made up of a C51 north bridge and MCP51 south bridge. As we reported
in our Computex coverage, the C51's integrated graphics processor will use GeForce 6 series technology. The spec sheet's mention of a Realtek ALC882 HD audio codec also suggests that the MCP51 south bridge will support high definition audio.
