    NVIDIA is planning to launch the AMD platform-based MCP72 IGP (integrated graphics processor) chipset at the end of November or the beginning of December this year, with mass production to start ahead in November. The chipset will come out in two versions, the high-end MCP72XE and the mainstream MCP72P, both supporting next generation PCI Express 2.0, HyperTransport 3.0 and the upcoming AMD Phenom processors. The MCP72XE will adopt a two chip design boasting dual 16x or quad 8x SLI modes, while the MCP72P will adopt single chip design supporting only dual 8x SLI mode. Also an advantage of the MCP72P is that it is pin compatible with the previous MCP65 chipsets, therefore motherboard makers should only need to make small modifications to their PCB designs helping to save costs.

    hmm, i find this amusing, nothing wrong, just amusing. NV making stuff for AMD gear who own ATI.. :)

    still, one way of poaching some business, but then again, not all AMD platforms utilise ATI cards, so really nothing wrong in that
