Nvidia is going to introduce their 500 series of media and communications processors (MCP) at CeBit, which offer the ability to run four simultaneous GPU’s in SLI mode. Their MCP lineup includes:
Also, according to ExtremeTech, Other nForce 500 features will include “MediaShield” technology that will support dual RAID-5 arrays, support for up to ten USB 2.0 devices and six 3-Gbit SATA hard drives, and support for AMD’s upcoming AM2 microprocessor pinout, which will add DDR2 memory support to AMD’s microprocessors.
Beside pure processing power, the GPU improvements will bring the most visible changes to your future computing. The ability to crank up the resolution, anti-aliasing and every other setting definitely makes a huge difference in the smoothness of play and look of real life. The DDR2 support will allow for even more speed on the AMD platform. More detailed information may be available once CeBit begins.
