Graphics and media processors designer NVIDIA Corp. will talk about its forthcoming high-end gaming platform for Intel Corp.'s microprocessors at the upcoming Intel Developer Forum (IDF) Spring 2004, according to Intel's web-site. The presentation is expected to take place on the very first day of the show.

nForce for Intel Pentium 4 Approaches

The session entitled ?Bringing NVIDIA nForce SLI to the Intel Platform?will be performed by Drew Henry, NVIDIA's General Manager, Platform Products, on the 1st of March, 2005.

?Be one of the first to experience this public technology demonstration and get a glimpse of what NVIDIA has in mind for nForce on the Intel Platform. Drew Henry, General Manager of NVIDIA's MCP group, will preview this stunning new technology,?a statement over Intel's web-site reads.

NVIDIA Corp.'s upcoming core-logic for Intel Pentium 4 processors code-named Crush 19, or C19, has already been certified by PCI Special Interest Group and is currently in the PCI-SIG's Integrator's List, according to the organization's web-site. The certification confirms NVIDIA's plans to release a high-quality core-logic product supporting Intel's chips in the short-term.

This PCI-SIG Integrators List includes all products that have a complete and satisfactory PCI Compliance Checklist on file at PCI-SIG, have passed the test criteria set forth at the PCI Compliance Workshops and are production ready.

Crush 19 to be Branded nForce 4 Intel Edition?

The Crush 19 chipset from NVIDIA is currently expected to support various Intel processors, including the most powerful and innovative in LGA775 form-factor with 1066MHz processor system bus as well as EM64T, XD and EIST technologies. Currently unofficial sources state that the only memory configuration to be supported will be dual-channel DDR2 SDRAM at 533MHz or 667MHz, but no dual-channel DDR memory. NVIDIA is also expected to incorporate special enhancements for Multi-GPU SLI configurations, which will allow installing two PCI Express x16 graphics slots and cards.

Given that due to external memory controller on Intel-based platforms, NVIDIA is expected to bring dual-chip core-logic for mainboards intended for Intel chips. The MCP04 I/O controller that is proclaimed to be paired with Crush 19 MCH is projected to inherit many features from the nForce4 core-logic, NVIDIA RAID, NVIDIA ActiveArmor firewall, NVIDIA Gigabit Ethernet, Serial ATA-300 and other important technologies, like USB 2.0, FireWire, 8-channel AC?7 audio and so on.

Currently it is unclear, how many versions of the Crush 19 chipset NVIDIA may offer. The Santa Clara, California-based NVIDIA usually preps numerous flavours of its chipsets seeking to target various markets with various demands for functionality and pricing.

It is currently unclear what the official brand-name for the Crush 19 will be, but German web-site ComputerBase believes the core-logic will be branded as NVIDIA nForce4 Intel Edition.
