The first Nvidia UMA chipsets for Intel

 

The Gigabyte 73 series includes the GA-73UM-S2H and GA-73PVM-S2H which are based on the NVIDIA® GeForce® 7 Series GPUs.

These products are part of a new category of Integrated Graphics Processor (IGP) motherboards that are going to feature High Definition video playback with HDMI support, but are also supposed to deliver graphics to rival discrete graphics solutions. The proof is in the pudding as they say, however Gigabyte claims the 73 series will support Intel CPU’s, including Intel Core2 Multi-Core processors.

Both motherboards feature the Realtek ALC889A audio codec with 7.1 + 2 channels of High Definition output and high-performance DAC (Digital-Analog Converter) with 106 dB Signal-to-Noise ratio playback quality. The ALC889A also features DTS Connect™ technology.

Although this series is designed for mainstream users, the board is purported to support 1333 MHz FSB and DDR2 800MHz memory, supposedly making them the highest value Microsoft Window Vista Premium capable motherboards available. If you are on the outlook for an all-in-one solution motherboard, with onboard everything, from graphics to sound, then this may be the answer for you.
