PCs built using Nvidia's nForce integrated chipsets are thicker on the ground than first thought.

Though US manufacturer MicronPC is claiming it is first to get a machine out, Germany's 4MBO was there ahead of it. It announced a WinXP, Athlon XP nForce box, called the e-Force, to coincide with the launch of Windows XP on 25 October. It employs the 420D version of the nForce.

4MBO sells through the discount food supermarket chain Plus. Alain Tiquet, Nvidia's director of marketing for Europe, said Plus shifted 15,000 PCs in the first weekend it became available.

Tiquet says that a couple of home grown PC manufacturers in Germany, France, Italy and the UK will have nForce machines on sale in time for Christmas. Brand named include Vobis, Fujitsu Siemens, and Humano.

The UK end is taken care of by Time Computers and Mesh, which is already selling its £999 Matrix XP 1600 NF. ®
