Nvidia schedules to launch three MCP 78-based chipsets, MCP 78U, S and D in November of this year. The MCP 78U and S are both IGP (integrated graphics processor) chipsets, while the MCP 78D does not support integrated graphics, according to sources from motherboard makers.

The MCP 78U and S chipsets will support DirectX 10 and PureVideo GEN2 technology. The PureVideo GEN2 will feature a BSP decoding engine and HDCP. Additionally, Nvidia's Hybrid SLI technology will also be supported, noted the sources.

The MCP 78's specifications have already been distributed to motherboard makers and the A01 engineering sample is predicted to complete in August. Engineering verification test samples are scheduled to be ready in October and the chipsets will officially launch and ship in November, stated the sources.

MCP 78U-based motherboard will be priced around US$70-80, while the MCP 78S will be around US$55-65. The MCP 78S will have lower graphics core frequencies than the MCP 78U plus the chipset will not include the BSP engine. The MCP 78D will have similar features as the MCP 78S except without integrated graphics. Pricing for this chipset has not been set.

Nvidia declined the opportunity to comment on this report.

I imagine they'll be about as good with DX10 as intel ingegrated is with DX9 right now. They got have some thing though. PC manufacturers won't want to stick a $100 video card in every PC. Plus another card is some thing to break...at least with onboard they just have to replace the mother board and not have to test any thing to find the problem
