    Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) is enthusiastic about working with AMD to help develop and support socket AM2 platforms. SiS and AMD value cooperation and the ability to work together on innovative technologies while building a close relationship. SiS is now poised to release a full line of solutions for the socket AM2 platform.

    SiS proudly introduces its newly-released socket AM2 solutions supporting AMD Athlon 64 and AMD Sempron processors, including the AMD Athlon 64 FX-62 and AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ dual-core processors. Socket AM2 processors provide full support for advanced dual-channel DDR2 memory, to effectively enhance memory efficiency, to increase memory bandwidth and to enhance overall system performance. SiS’ latest chipsets for socket AM2: SiS756 and SiS761GX, represent the latest chipset offerings from SiS for desktop on AMD-processor based platforms.

    SiS756 and SiS761GX chipsets fully support AMD Athlon 64 FX dual-core processors, AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processors, AMD Athlon 64, and AMD Sempron processors. SiS756 is currently the most high-end desktop chipset from SiS for the AMD64 platform, while the integrated SiS761GX chipset includes the advanced MirageTM1 graphics core with software support for Microsoft’s DirectX 9.

    “AMD has been working jointly with SiS for several years. We believe socket AM2 motherboards with SiS chipsets will be among the feature rich products on the market,” said Bob Brewer, corporate vice president, Desktop Division, AMD. “By supporting our reliable chipset partners, like SiS, we are confident that our socket AM2 platforms will enable customers to benefit from the amazing features socket AM2 introduces.”

    “SiS is pleased to have had this opportunity to work with AMD on the development of socket AM2 platforms,” said Daniel Chen, President and CEO of SiS. “With the integration of SiS chipsets, the socket AM2 platform enables smooth, effective, multi-tasking for enhanced performance. Customers can experience immediate benefits with socket AM2 platforms since they offer exceptional performance without comprising system reliability. We believe SiS can create value for our customers and the PC market by continuing to cooperate with AMD.”

    I'm not a fan of SiS. I'm really pleased with my nForce board so I think I'll stick with Nvidia from now on while I'm using AMD.

    Their chipsets may perform fairly well, that has yet to be seen, but their integrated graphics chipsets are put to shame. I would NOT buy a laptop with their mobile chipset....


    Mirage 1 - DirectX 7.1 compliant
    Mirage 2 - DirectX 8.1 compliant

    That and low performance gives them NO benifits in my mind compared to a GMA900 chipset.... which I also think is way too slow for a decent laptop.
