No, the 760MPX is the 768 southbridge, rather than the 766 southbridge with
760MP. It's quite different as it also supports 66MHz 64-bit PCI.  What
you're probably thinking about was when the first 760MPX chipsets were
released, they had a subtle USB bug, so motherboards (such as Tyan S2466N)
included a PCI card to support USB.  AMD fixed the chipset to natively
support USB properly, but didn't change the chipset number (still 760MPX);
Tyan's new motherboards containing this fixed 760MPX chipset do have a new
model number (Tyan S2466N-4M, which actually denotes the 4Mbit/512KB

Hope this helps, and take care,
