Soruces tell the INQUIRER that engineering samples of NForce 2 motherboards are due to tip up as early (late!) as next week.
If indeed the boards do sneak over the horizon, it could mean a launch date for the controversial chipset is less than a month away, depending, of course, on how much work the engineers are forced to do to get their samples working smoothly, of course.
The chipset will integrate GeForce 4 MX graphics with support for AGP 8x graphics cards; Firewire 1394 and USB 2.0; an ATA/133 interface; high-speed HyperTransport and an extension of the original nForce's dual memory controller technology, aka TwinBank, that will support DDR 400
