Nvidia's super secret Crush chipset will be officially announced later this month - or at the beginning of December.

The reports seem to have started on hardware review site, Rolotech. You can read its preview here.

The chipset is rumoured to be in development at Nvidia, initially for the Athlon or Duron. Rolotech also states that as soon as Nvidia gets a licensing deal with Intel, it will begin work on a chipset for the PIII and Celeron.

The spec of the as yet unconfirmed chipset, which would be Nvidia's first, looks like this:


  • DDR Memory (two versions to be implemented - but we'll discuss that later)
  • Socket-A support, 266Mhz bus (a P!!! version is in the planning stages)
  • Integrated GeForce2 MX 3D core
  • 4x AGP
  • New MCP-1 SouthBridge to be used

Roy Taylor, Nvidia's European director of sales, would not comment specifically on the Crush chipset, but he did say the company was "very excited about forthcoming product developments". ®
