The NVIDIA nForce 780 Chipset series enables Hybrid SLI for use of up to 3-4 combined GPUs working as one. The chipset is shipped in two versions; 780a for compatibility with AMD processors, and 780i for compatibility with Intel processors. The chipset was released in December of 2007, but NVIDIA didn't begin any serious shipping amounts until January of 2008. Most of the motherboards that use the chipset were not introduced until mid/late 2008. The most common manufacturers currently using the 780 chipset include ASUS, MSI, XFX, eVGA, Foxconn and many others. The 780 also introduces the more widespread use of high-definition resolution and output of both video and audio. Many motherboards using the NVIDIA nForce 780 chipset include an onboard GeForce 8 series GPU as an added graphics performance benefit. 

  • CPU support for both Intel and AMD 32/64-bit processors (780a/780i)
