CEBIT - Nvidia's GeForce 7 finds a home on motherboards

Nvidia plans to soon begin production of a integrated chipsets based on the GeForce 7 graphics processor.

Nvidia will offer versions GeForce 7 graphics processors that are designed to be used on motherboards as part of a chipset, instead of the add-in graphics cards where the chips are currently available.

Chipsets are the central nervous system of a computer, connecting the processor with main memory and peripherals, like hard disks, DVD-ROM drives and add-in graphics cards. Some chipsets also include an integrated graphics processor, which eliminates the need for a costly add-in card and can reduce the overall size of the computer.

Nvidia will ship a range of GeForce 7 integrated chipsets designed to be used with Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) and Intel processors. The first chips to be introduced are the GeForce 7050 PV and GeForce 7025, which is designed to be coupled with Nvidia's nForce 630a core-logic chip.

The integrated graphics chips, which are designed for AMD processors, will enter production next month, and will be available before the middle of the year, said David Ragones, a product manager at Nvidia, at the annual Cebit exhibition in Hanover, Germany.

Nvidia plans broadening the range of GeForce 7 chipsets with the addition of versions of these chips designed to work with Intel processors. Those chips are slated to begin production during the third quarter of this year, Ragones said.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
