Nvidia is expected to launch its MCP61S integrated graphics processor (IGP) chipset for the AMD AM2 platform at the end of August, unspecified motherboard makers noted. The all-in-one IGP solution, which is being manufactured on 90nm technology at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation (TSMC), entered the sample stage in May, the makers indicated.

According to the makers, the Nvidia MCP61S is a single chip integrating both northbridge and southbridge capabilities and fully supports Microsoft DirectX 9.0c, and will eventually replace Nvidia's GeForce 6100 northbridge chip that works in conjunction with the nForce 410 southbridge. The new IGP chipset could help motherboard manufacturers reduce design and production costs, as the unit price of MCP61S-based motherboards could be lowered to less than US$80, the makers estimate.
