I wish I could track down the origination of that spec.
(The relatively wide compatibility information.)


Now, this isn't exactly the same thing, but it illustrates my concern.

    GF7050VT-M (V1.0)   NVIDIA GeForce 7050 / NVIDIA nForce 610i

The 610 isn't the same as your 620. The chipset is a single chip,
the 620 describes the feature set of the Southbridge portion of
that single chip. It might be established by bond-out or laser programming.
(The same silicon die, may be used for several SKUs.)

    LGA775   Intel Core 2 Quad processor   Q6700 (G0) (95W)  N/A   2.66 GHz

So it does accept a Quad, just a Kentsfield. There are no Yorkfield
processors in that list.

    LGA775   Intel Core 2 Duo   E8600 (E0) (65W) N/A   3.33 GHz

And that entry, shows they also supported a relatively recent dual core
with FSB1333. I'm using that as evidence that Yorkfield processors may
also have existed at the time, so it wasn't as if they were not available.

This motherboard is same chipset as the previous, three phase power,
and it includes one other processor.

    LGA775   Intel Core 2 Quad processor   Q9500 (R0) (95W) N/A 2.83 GHz

And Q9500 is a Yorkfield, according to this.

So "which information is king" ? It is the Nvidia document ? Or any other
documents you might manage to find ?

Those three phase boards, seem to list 95W processors. To give some
idea what power range could be handled. There is one 105W processor
they could have listed if they wanted, but it isn't there.
