Nvidia MCP7A Line-Up; Hybrid SLI For Intel
Nvidia MCP7A is the single-chip Hybrid SLI solution for Intel processors while MCP78 is for Hybrid SLI solution for AMD processors. After the launch of the nForce 790i (C73) chipset at CeBIT, the MCP7A will be next in line slated for launch in Q2. The key features of MCP7A are integrated DX10 capable GPU core supporting SM4.0 and VP 3.0, Hybrid SLI and SLI technology, PCIe 2.0 up to 20 lanes, 12 USB 2.0 ports, 6 SATA II ports, HDMI/DisplayPort support. There are as many as 8 SKUs planned for MCP7A and the most high end are the MCP7A-SLI and MCP7A-GL supporting SLI technology coupled with higher performance iGPU cores.Right now, motherboard makers are having A01 samples which are still buggy and there is a B1-step coming which fix most of the bugs.
