First mainstream DDR3 chipset

According to Expreview, Nvidia is looking at adding DDR3 support to its upcoming MCP7A-U for Intel processors, although only 1,333MHz modules will be supported, which seems slightly moot, considering that there's no performance benefit over DDR2 800MHz modules at this speed.
