nForce 2: announced and shown
As it was planned, on July, 16 nVidia presented its nForce 2 chipset for AMD processors, supporting DDR400, demonstrated at Semicon West 2002, San Jose.
nForce2 SPP features AGP 8X for add-in graphics and DDR400 subsystem for up to 3 DIMM modules.

Chipset supports LAN/WAN connectivity, 6 USB 2.0 ports and 3 FireWire (IEEE1394) ports. Besides, nForce2 MCP features Dolby Digital encoder.
nForce2 samples are now shipped to company´s main partners: Abit, ABS, Alienware, Aopen, ASUSTeK, Atlas Micro, Chaintech, Epox, HyperSonic, Leadtek, MSI, Shuttle Computer, Soltek, Totally Awesome, and Vicious PC. nForce2 mass production is expected closer to August, and first nForce2 boards are to appear in September.
