Default nForce 780i SLI to be released on November 12

Quote:
November will be a full (monty) month for the Santa Clara team we know as Nvidia as it will be releasing new graphic cars and new chipsets. The nForce 700 series will include chipsets for both AMD and Intel platforms, the C72s for the Intel platform being set to have a hard launch on November 12, the same day the G92 and G98 are rumored to be ready and in the shops.

On November 12 Nvidia will release the nForce 780i SLI chipset for Intel's LGA775 processors which will come with support for the 'old' 1066 FSB Core 2 series, the 1333 FSB processors and the upcoming 45nm-build Yorkfield and Wolfdale CPUs. nForce 780i SLI powered boards will support DDR2 memory, will have three PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slots ready for Tri-SLI, two Gigabit Ethernet controllers and six SATA 3.0 Gbps ports. The C73 chipset will bring DDR3 support in Q1 2008. Not long now.

What do you think will be better, the 780i or the x38's?

X48 will be better, I assume. Which is coming out shortly after the X38.

The P35 chipset is all I need....who needs PCI-E 2.0 when we finally just maxed out the bandwidth in AGP...regular PCI-E has A LOT left.
