Integrierte Grafik: SiS präsentiert AMD64-Chipsatz


Erschienen: 22.09.2003, 06:30 Uhr, Quelle: E-Mail, Autor: Patrick von Brunn

Hersteller SiS stellte heute seinen neuen SiS 760 Chipsatz für Athlon 64 Plattformen vor. Dies ist somit der erste offizielle Chipsatz mit integrierter Grafik, der gleichzeitig für AMD´s neue 64 Bit Prozessoren gedacht ist. Neben den üblichen Features unterstützt der SiS 760, Dank der SiS 964 Southbridge, auch beispielsweise Serial-ATA. Als integrierte Grafik kommt SiS´ Ultra 256 zum Einsatz, welche sogar DirectX 8.1 unterstützt (Hardware). Die Massenproduktion soll noch in diesem Monat beginnen und somit sollten erste Platinen bereits in nächster Zeit auf den Markt kommen.

"SiS, a world leading provider for core logic products, today announces SiS760 – the world´s first integrated chipset supporting AMD 64-bit platform. With high-speed DDR400 function, 800MHz Front Side Bus format, and an embedded graphic engine, SiS760 provides excellent graphics performance which is comparable to that of an external AGP 8X graphic card. SiS760 can also fully support newest AMD 64-bit CPUs, including Athlon 64 and Opetron.

Built with an embedded Ultra 256 Graphic Core, SiS760 offers not only hardware supporting Pixel Shader v.1.3 complied with DirectX 8.1, but also software emulating advanced DirectX 9.0. Consequently, SiS760 can bring much better graphic performance than what traditional integrated Chipset does. Besides, SiS760 can support dual-video out function by integrating with SiS301C chip. In addition, LFB (Local Frame Buffer) can independently satisfied the storage need of graphic data. All these features enable SiS760 to deliver great graphic performance the same as an external graphic card with AGP8X interface.

SiS964 will be coupled with SiS760 as the South Bridge Chipset, which integrated with Serial ATA high-speed transfer interface. The brand-new South Bridge Chipset SiS964 not only supports Dual-Channel parallel ATA, but also adds two independent Serial ATA150 connection ports, which offer storage devices with data transmission speed up to 150MB/sec. Other special features include 8 built-in USB2.0 ports, which meet the requirement for increasing peripheral device connections, full 5.1 channel surround sound, V.90 modem and Ethernet network. The SiS964 also supports Multiple RAID disk array modes, including RAID0, RAID1, and JBOD, which further enhance the stability and performance of the operating environment..."
