SiS annuncia supporto ai processori AMD Athlon XP 3200+
SiS emette un comunicato stampa ufficiale nel quale annuncia il lancio del chipset SiS748, che offre supporto ai nuovi processori AMD Athlon XP 3200+ con bus a 400MHz:
"Taipei, May 13, 2003 --- Silicon Integrated Systems Corp. (SiS), a leading supplier of core logic chipsets, today announces the advanced support for AMD AthlonTM XP processor 3200+ with 400 front side bus.
The AMD Athlon XP processor 3200+, is the high-performance desktop PC processor that outperforms competing desktop PC processors on a variety of industry standard software benchmarks.
In response to the growing market demand for AMD Athlon processors, SiS748 that unveiled at CeBIT 2003 moves into mass production. As the first core logic chipset on the market that supports AMD Athlon XP processor 3200+ with 400 front side bus, SiS748 has integrated the DDR400 memory controller to extensively expand the bandwidth for data transmission and synchronize the computation of front side bus and memory. Moreover, SiS introduces the revolutionary HyperStreaming™- intelligent data processing technology- to enhance functionality by efficiently allocating resources according to data processing needs. The data transmission cab be processed either synchronously or by batch to fully exploit the incomparable power of the AMD Athlon XP processor 3200+.
“The AMD Athlon XP processor 3200+ is a testament to the ultimate potential and stability of AMD processors. After SiS748, SiS will introduce more quality high-level products and provide more competitive portfolios to customers and consumers to demonstrate SiS’ commitment in developing core logic chipsets for AMD processors,” said Michael Chen, president and CEO of SiS.
“The AMD Athlon XP processor 3200+ and SiS core logic chipset will provide our customers with increased data throughput resulting in better system and application performance,” said Tim Wright, AMD’s director of desktop business segment. “Systems based on AMD Athlon XP 3200+ and SiS core logic chipset are designed to meet the expectations of the most demanding gaming, digital content creation or digital video customers.” "
Il chipset SiS748 supporta i processori AMD Athlon XP 3200+ con front side bus a 400 MHz, memoria DDR400, interfaccia AGP8x, interconnessione MuTIOL 1G tra northbridge e southbridge SiS963L e funzioni Hyper Streaming.
Il South Bridge integra controller USB 2.0/1.1, due canali ATA 133/100/166, controller audio 5.1, modem v.90 e funzionalità Ethernet.
