[vr-zone] MCP7A-U to support DDR3-1333, first DDR3 mainstream mobo?

But instead of canceling, 730i will keep exist and have new chipset, the MCP7A-S. In other words, MCP7A-S will have two names, one is GeForce 9xxx (still can not conform its name) and the other is 730i. The GeForce 9xxx is a uATX form factor mobo, with less PCI, PCIe and other expansion slots. 730i is a ATX mobo and has more expansion slots.

MCP7A-U is the top class chipset in the MCP7A family. Though it could be named as GeForce 9XXX, it will be come the first mainstream uATX mobo with DDR3-1333 support. Sources inform us the MCP7A-U will be the “fastest mGPUâ€, but who knows.

The chips now is in B1 revision stage, and have already taped out, NV will send samples to its partners in May. The final product may hits the market in July, which is also Intel G45’s launch month.

The first? Weren't there a bunch of P35 boards that supported DDR3? Most of them were a little pricey, but they were still fairly mainstream at around $130+.

Since when could P35 support DDR3? I believe X38 was the first DDR3 support motherboard and those are pricy.

P35 was the first.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_P35

I know a mobo of gigabyte with both DDR2 & DDR3 w/ P35 chipset.

Supports both DDR2 and DDR3 memory for great flexibility
And the P35 DDR3 boards were inexpensive when i was building a rig, but DDR3 Memory module was not.

Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3 supports DDR3 type RAM, and so does the ASUS P5KC. I believe MSI also had a board out that supported DDR3 with a P35 chipset, but I'm not 100% on that one. None of those boards supported DDR3 exclusively mind you, they usually had four banks of DDR2 and two banks of DDR3, and you could only run one type of RAM at a time.

The P35 doesn't support natively then? THe manufactors added in a translator chip?

No idea how it was done to be quite honest, I only know that it was done (and at pretty nerfed speeds too). I suppose this does mean that the 730i will be the first chipset to natively support DDR3, but they won't be the first mainstream motherboards to do so.

X38, X48, and 790i all natively support DDR3.... I think the 730i will be the first "cheap" motherboard to do so?

That's what I meant by mainstream - cheap boards, not $200+ enthusiast boards.

Yeah, but I honestly think it is too early. The cheapest 2x1GB DDR3 costs about $100 while the cheapest DDR2 kit would be $35. Getting a current mainstream mobo and DDR2 would be cheaper than getting just the DDR3 RAM. A mainstream customer would look at price first...
