 ADDENDUM:
 
 Digging further on, I came across
 
 http://www.ocworkbench.com/2005/uli/m1695/g1.htm
 
 which states:
 <cite>
 M1695 ... Tunnel Chip ... is ... chipset that uses a tunneling technique 
 to interconnect the two "North Bridges" as the South Bridge ...
 </cite> .
 
 Thus, the approach is as follows:
 
 [ CPU ] <-- HyperTransport Link -->  [ M1695 ] <-- HyperTransport Link 
 --> [ nForce3 250 ] <-- AGP Bus --> [ G550 ]
 
 which implies that indeed we have two host bridges, but sequentially - 
 not in parallel.
