Taipei, July 01, 2003 – Silicon Integrated Systems Corp. (SiS), a world leader in core logic products, today announces its SiS661FX – the world's first integrated chipset supporting the 800MHz Front Side Bus format. With an embedded graphic engine and high-speed DDR400 function, SiS661FX provides excellent performance and outstanding operating environment for heavy gamers and digital video players.
SiS661FX implements a well-designed format that enables P4 Front Side Bus, DDR RAM and AGP 8X to achieve the optimal performance. The powerful chipset also provides superior image qualities that totally redefine the top-of-the-line graphic standard of the integrated chipsets.
Moreover, by adopting SiS' revolutionary HyperStreaming™ Technology and the intellectual data-processing module, SiS661FX offers the best performance for the Intel® platform and the most efficient resource distribution. The data transmission can be processed either synchronously or by batch to fully exploit the incomparable power of the Intel® processor.
Built with incomparably advanced formats and functions, the SiS661FX provides OEMs and system integrators with the opportunity to expand the applications of integrated chipsets. SiS661FX, which is perfectly pin compatible with SiS' previous models, also largely lowers the developing cost and shortens production schedule for system builders.
"Integrated chipsets are moving forward to a new era that requires hi-end performance. The advanced FSB 800MHz specification and the well-designed interface enhance the applications of the PC platform." said Michael Chen, president and CEO of SiS. "SiS is now ready to extend the new design of the FSB 800MHz platform beyond the desktop PCs to notebook PCs."
Mass production of SiS661FX will commence in August 2003. Motherboards adopting the SiS661FX chipset will be available in the market in September 2003.
