- Lowered latencies: The single-chip NVIDIA architecture
provides an inherent performance advantage compared to dual-chip
implementations of the same functionality. In addition to overall
latency reductions, the NVIDIA nForce MCP significantly boosts device
throughput. An extremely fast dedicated HyperTransport link lets the
NVIDIA MCPs communicate with the CPU at up to 8.0GBps, which ensures
ample system bandwidth. This is especially beneficial when multiple
devices are active, or for supporting high-bandwidth devices.
- Design efficiency: The NVIDIA single-chip architecture
uses 0.15 micron process technology compared with the 0.22 micron
process used by existing solutions on the market today. This solution
offers unmatched integration of features and functionality and results
in: Simplified board layouts and more room for on-board features and
add-on chipsets. Lower power consumption and dissipated heat. Simplified
inventory management and cost efficiencies.
- Advanced technology features: Built-in NVIDIA RAID technology delivers optimized disk performance through disk striping and fault tolerance through disk mirroring. Select versions of the NVIDIA nForce MCPs incorporate a native Gigabit Ethernet port TCP/IP acceleration. NVIDIA delivers the highest performance networking solution for desktops and workstations. In addition, NVIDIA nForce solutions offer support for the latest graphics processors.
