Taipei, July 5th, 2006—SiS today announced its SiS662 chipset has successfully been adopted by 9 main motherboard makers such as Asus, Foxconn, ECS, and etc., since Q1 2006 when it presented to the public. SiS662 chipset, as expected, has become a shinning star in the market.
SiS662 integrated chipset is designed for Intel P4 platform and targets the mainstream market. It has been well-equipped in numerous motherboards made by well-known board makers—Asus P5SD2-MX, Abit SG-95, ECS 662-M, DFI 662-TMG , Foxconn 6627MA-RSH, MSI 662M, PCChip P31G, PC Partner SiS662MS7-Z06, and Shuttle FS30.
SiS662 chipset has taken the place of SiS661, which is SiS’ last-generation chipset for Intel P4 platform, to become the most cost-effective product for entry-level motherboard market. The most competitive ability of SiS662, particularly designed for Intel Pentium® D and Intel Pentium® 4 FSB 800 processor, is its superior specification of fully supporting new-generation technology such as dual core processor, 64-bit operating system, DDR2-667 memory, PCI Express interface, and more.
Integrated with advanced Mirage™ 1 graphics engine, SiS662 chipset enables the performance of 3D and DVD playback thoroughly. Also, it supports one PCI Express x 16 interface to provide single transmission bandwidth up to 4GB/s, which is much faster than transmission speed of 2.1GB/s that AGP 8X can provide. Furthermore, SiS662 chipset can be combined with SiS307 video chip to have perfectly high-definition image of DVD and HDTV.
SiS provides motherboard makers flexibility of choosing SiS966 or SiS966L Southbridge to be combined with SiS662 Northbridge chip. SiS966 supports 2 PCI Express x 1 ports, 8 USB2.0 controllers, 4 Serial ATA ports and 4 parallel ATA ports; SiS996L supports 2 PCI Express x 1 ports, 8 USB2.0 controllers, 2 Serial ATA ports and 4 parallel ATA ports. SiS966 and SiS966L meet different customers’ need when developing their own systems and provide benefits to customers.
