NVIDIA's 500 Series Chipsets
Both NVIDIA and ATI have AM2 ready chipsets for us today, but the NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI chipset is brand-spanking new. What kind of performance and features can you expect on these new DDR2-based platforms?

NVIDIA is going to be showing off some new MCP products at CeBit, aimed at AM2 platforms and beyond.
NVIDIA TO DEMONSTRATE NEXT-GENERATION NVIDIAÂ® NFORCEÂ® 500 FAMILY OF CORE-LOGIC SOLUTIONS AT CEBIT
WHAT: NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in programmable graphics processor technologies, today announced the Company will be conducting technology demonstrations this week of its new family of NVIDIA nForce family media and communications processor (MCP) which will be available mid-2006.
Why PCI Express Bandwidth Matters
With the launch of the XPress 3200, ATI raised questions about the efficiency of NVIDIA's dual chip SLI X16 soluiton and we set to out answer them as best we could.
Introduction to the Radeon XPress 3200
ATI is announcing the new Radeon XPress 3200 chipset today and we have all the details including 40 lanes of PCI Express on the north bridge and extreme overclocking potentional.
nForce for the Whole Family
NVIDIA is announcing two new chipsets for the Intel platform, aimed mainly at the mainstream and budget markets. You won't find quad SLI systems in here, though maybe you'll find a new system for mom?

ATI's upcoming X16 chipset is going to be called the XPress 3200 according to the InqWell.
The 3200 number is there because the chipset features 32 lanes for dual PCIe 16X graphic cards and the rest of the name is logical.
Motherboard manufacturers are making these boards as we speak and there should be some retail boards at launch time. The boards are scheduled for a double jeopardy launch with the new graphic chip R580, known as Radeon X1900XTX.

If I was forced to speculate, I would suggest mobile chipsets and SATA-II. Although NVIDIA offers nForce3 mobile chipsets, they've been unusually quiet for the last few years. From this interview, we now know that 2006 will be the year that NVIDIA will return to the mobile market in greater force.

Well, this is certainly going to be a smack in the face to ATI's hopes in the chipset market. NVIDIA is set to take over ULI's chipset business next year and that is nothing but bad news for the big red machine. As most of you know the ATI motherboard south bridge chips have been plagued with issues and ATI's quick fix was to pair the Xpress 200 north bridge with a ULI south bridge, just like we saw on the Asus A8R-MVP motherboard I recently reviewed.&n
Introduction to the K8T900
VIA readies another chipset that is both ready for the M2 socket as well as competing in the currently NVIDIA-dominated AMD-platform chipset market.
NVIDIA's Return to Integrated GPUs
NVIDIA has readied its first integrated chipset since the nForce2 and is going to try and take the AMD market by storm by offering HD output for the first time on a motherboard.
