Ryan Shrout over at amdmb.com (http://www.amdmb.com) has an in-depth article regarding the ins & outs of the NVidia chipset. Of an interesting note is how NVidia has their market breakup and how the nForce architecture fits into it all. The article is fairly lengthly but there is a lot of info to digest including block diagrams and the explanation of the memory systems. Read about it here (http://www.amdmb.com/article-display.php?ArticleID=119)
The image below pretty much says it all:

Damn, talk about your super integrated high performance mobo. Now if they could throw in a 3Com NIC, than all the other mobo companies would have to close shop.:D
You know I'll be inline for this mobo!

I think an enthusiast would have more then 256MB of RAM...especially considering the dirt cheap prices of memory today!
Im buying the top of the line nForce chipset baby!!! Goodbye to mah sound card and NIC! Integration Here I come :)

After reading the article, it sure sounds like a good design. If everything is true and works as planned, then they do have a winner on their hands. My only concern is the integrated gf2, but then if a 3 were built in, no one would buy the add-on gf3 card, very good marketing! It's going to interesting to see how these boards stack up to the new KT266A boards with the via chip, and also the reports that AMD will be implementing a 166 fsb next year.

IA: Are you kidding? Hell, we should slap like 2GB of DDR in the Nforce mobo.:D

A few more details about Nforce came out today, if you insert a new video card in the AGP slot you will automatically override and disable the onboard GPU. There will not be any jumpers, just plug your AGP card in and you are ready to rock.
But with this version of Nforce(chrush12), you will not be able to use both the integrated graphics engine and an AGP card at the same time so you can forget about dual monitors, this is coming in the next revision of Nforce scheduled for Q1 next year.
