Silicon Integrated Systems heeft gisteren tijdens een persconferentie de SiS 730S Athlon / Duron chipset gepresenteerd. De 730S is een single chip oplossing met ge´ntegreerde north- en southbridge, die naast de gebruikelijke functies ook beschikt over ge´ntegreerde 128-bit 3D graphics, ethernet, modem, audio en DVD playback. Verder is er support voor PC133 SDRAM, ATA100 en AGP4x. Het gebruik van de ingebakken videochip is dus gelukkig niet verplicht:
SiS, a logic products company, today held a press conference to present the first 3C integrated single chip - - the SiS730S which optimizes the performance of AMD Athlon(TM) and AMD Duron(TM) CPUs. SiS730S optimizes the performance of AMD Athlon(TM) and AMD Duron(TM) Processor-Based PCs with Integrated Core Logic, Graphics and Connectivity Technologies.
During the demonstration, the SiS730S incorporates seamlessly with AMD Athlon(TM) CPU platform when running graphics and multimedia application. The built-in SiS300, a 128-bit 3D/2D graphics chip, which allows the video memory to share with the system memory up to 64 MB, and enables a dramatic 3D VR effect. Furthermore, it provides hardware DVD playback that significantly contributes lower CPU usage to systems.
The SiS730S also provides up-to-date PC133 SDRAM, ATA-100 IDE and a stand-alone AGP 4x slot. The stand-alone AGP 4x slot is especially designed for upgrades to easily accommodate future advances. In addition, a high quality data transferring capabilities, including 56K Modem, Fast Ethernet, 1/10Mb Home PNA, allows users to immerse themselves in surfing the Internet. The SiS730S can drive systems up to an ultimate level of performance.
The SiS730S provides an all-in-one software for driver installation. With a click, the software can automatically implement the driver installation of built-in graphics, audio, and connectivity chips and it supports up to 32 languages. The worldwide first user-friendly interface software developed and introduced by SiS for Linux platform is also available on the SiS730S. The software supports hardware DVD playback, 5.1-channels and Internet applications. The SiS730S is compatible with all major OS like Windows 95/98/Me/2000, NT4.0, WinCE and Linux. The SiS730S is an ideal system solution for desktop PCs, Notebooks and Set-top boxes.
