Nvidia Corp. has unveiled its latest core-logic set compatible with Intel Corp.’s latest central processing units that sports DirectX 10-class graphics processing unit (GPU). The novelty boasts with decent feature-set and will replace the aging predecessors.

Nvidia recently started to brand its core-logic chips with integrated graphics processing cores (IGPs) as GeForce motherboard GPUs (mGPUs), which indicates that the company does not see a lot of value of its nForce IGP brand on the entry-level market, where consumers are concerned about the price and trendy features, but not rich enthusiast-class functionality the nForce is primarily known for these days. As a result, the new single-chip core-logic from Nvidia is called GeForce 9300 mGPU, even though it more than a GPU.

Nvidia’s GeForce 9300 mGPU is compatible with Intel Core 2 processors that utilize up to 1333MHz processor system bus (PSB) and also sports dual-channel DDR3 memory controller (up to PC3-16000, 1333MHz), PCI Express 2.0 controller (PCIe x16 + 4x PCIe x1), Serial ATA controller, high-definition audio controller, PCI controller, Gigabit Ethernet support and so on. Eventually Nvidia also plans to release GeForce 9400 mGPU with a little bit higher-performing IGP thanks to boosted clock-speeds: 580MHz/1400MHz (core/shader domain) vs. 450MHz/1200MHz for the 9300.

The integrated GeForce 9300/9400 graphics core features 16 stream processing units, Nvidia PureVideo HD engine for decoding and post-processing of high-definition video as well as dual-link DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort output support. Performance of such integrated graphics cores is likely to be similar to low-end graphics cards, such as GeForce 8400 GS or 8500 GT. End-users will be able to utilize an entry-level discrete GPU in multi-GPU mode with GeForce 9300/9400 mGPUs.

Nvidia did not reveal when GeForce 9300/9400 mGPU-based mainboards are set to become available on the market and at what price-point.
