nForce 780i delayed until late December: has ?Penryn issues?
A rumour started over at NordicHardware has been circulating around the net for a few days now ? and has naturally found its way here. Previously scheduled for release on November 12, the site report that the chip will now find its way into consumer?s hands in late December. Apparently, the chip still has problems with Intel?s 45nm Penryn CPU?s. In the one review we?ve seen, the chip can?t outperform its predecessor, the 680i. Although, the chip is essentially a 680i with an NF200 chip for additional PCIe lanes.
