MCPxx = single-chip northbridge + southbridge, with or without
integrated graphics
Gxx = graphics processor

Now, I might be ignorant here, but wouldn't it be realistic to expect
them to function at least a bit different? MCPs have integrated audio
controller that certainly isn't the same as one used in Gs.

But, well... it might just work. Maybe NVIDIA wanted to make life
easier for developers and used the same logic everywhere.

Doesn't ATI have different HDMI for integrated and discrete?
