Default Nvidia's C51 chipset to launch next month

The C51, graphics giant nVidia's first chipset to feature integrated graphics since 2002, will be launched on September 20, according to a source in Taiwan's PC manufacturing industry. The two chip C51 (the real name has yet to be announced by nVidia), will come in several different versions, with support for AMD CPUs initially.
More details of the chipset later, but first, some wild speculation: at the moment, plugging a new graphics card into a PC with integrated graphics means disabling the integrated graphics core. Could the C51 be the first onboard graphics chipset to actually be upgradeable with an add-on card, so both the integrated and external graphics chips work together? Nvidia certainly hasn't said anything about this, but it could be possible – more on that at the end of this article.

But imagine: just plug a special (perhaps DRAM-less) 6200-based graphics card into the PCI-Express x16 slot on a C51 mainboard, and have it work together in SLI mode with the 6200 core inside the chipset, providing an instant, cheap performance boost to an old motherboard. Given driver support and sufficient shared memory, why not?

How cool is that? I hope Nvidia implements this feature

the performance boost going from 6200 to 2x6200 will still be slower then 1x6600 I guess

6600 = $100 or less?

The turbo cache 6200 sucks; not the 6200 with real rams.

no I don't think so, buying mobo C51 + seperate 6200 will be as expensive as none-C51 mobo + 6600

that's my guess; SLI is fine and dandy in the medium/top of the line; but in low end it's useless in my humble opinion;
