    What nVidia said @ semiconductor conference yesterday:

    “We are going to completely focus all of our energy on the AMD platform. By the end of this year we'll have a chipset family that spans nForce 1 on the bottom, nForce 2 in the mid-range as well as a chipset for the high-end that is a companion for the K8 Hammer family by the end of this year. So we should be top to bottom by the end of this year for the Athlon family.â€

    So more new chipsets (well at least 1 more) from nVidia are coming this year not only NV30/nforce2 ;)

    “nForce 2… you know... the rumors are already on the street that the nForce 2 is going to be based on GeForce 4… so our next generation core logic is probably going to be something on the lines of this.â€

    So confirmaton from nVidia that nForce2 will be based on Geforce4 chipset.

    You can listen to the whole speech if you want to here - http://www.veracast.com/ssb/2002/semiconductor/63102224.cfm (but its over 40min long)

    As long as it supports DDR400 and you can get it without the integrated GFX, I am all for it.

    remember what the nforce is geared for

    remember what the nforce is geared for, it's supposed to be a high performance alternative
    to other highly integrated motherboards. i'm actually looking at putting together an abit
    NV7M nForce 420 (microATX) box, talk about a lan box, it will be tiny!
