|SiS748 exclusively support to FSB 400MHz and DDR400
SiS today unveiled its latest AMD core logic chipset, the SiS748. SiS748, a top-of-the-line core logic chipset for the AMD K7 platform, is the first AMD chipset on the market to support front-side bus 400MHz.
The SiS748 is the first of its kind to support functions such as 400MHz front-side bus, highly effective DDR400, AGP8X interface, SiS MuTIOL 1G and the advanced HyperStreamingTM technology. It is the only AMD platform chipset equipped with these top specifications in the current market.
Supporting front-side bus 400MHz and high-speed DDR400 system memory, the SiS748 dramatically increases the data transfer bandwidth and fully exploits the performance of the synchronization of the system and the memory clocks. The SiS748 not only provides a better AMD platform for users, but also brings power to deliver higher levels of PC performance by taking advantage of FSB 400MHz technology with AMD processor.
“Being the first to capture the full power of both FSB 400MHz and DDR400, the SiS748 exemplifies the unwavering position that SiS has on the AMD™ platform technology” said Michael Chen, the President of SiS. “It is our commitment to continuously provide products with pioneering specifications that help create a competitive product mix to meet the needs of our valuable customers.”
The SiS748 is paired with the South Bridge SiS963L, which features MuTIOL 1G technology, USB 2.0/1.1, Dual ATA133/100/66 IDE Channels, 5.1 Channel AC’97 Audio, 10/100Mb Ethernet and Home PNA2.0. The MuTIOL 1G is an SiS proprietary technology with 1GB/sec transfer speed and bi-directional 16-bit data bus at 533MHz operating speed, allowing a seamless bridge between the North Bridge and South Bridge. Utilizing SiS’s MuTIOL 1G technology, SiS748 and SiS963L combination provides the widest data bandwidth yet to achieve high-transfer-rate requirement.
