The SiS671FX chipset is for Intel desktop PCs platform, and it aims to provide outstanding system performance by supporting Windows Vista. It supports Intel Core 2 Duo processors, and also supports FSB up to 1066MHz. Besides, the SiS671FX chipset integrates Mirage 3 graphics engine to provide DX9.0 hardware support and extremely advanced 2D and 3D graphics effects. Combining with SiS Real Video Technology, the SiS671FX chipset is able to deliver superior static and dynamic images. In addition, the SiS671FX supports one PCI Express x16 slot to provide up to 4GB/s of bandwidth for each direction.

In addition, power-saving is another feature of the SiS671FX chipset. The SiS671FX is integrated with the SiS Mirage 3 graphics engine with “Smart Dynamic Clock Gating” technology. It can automatically adjust the clock no matter in 2D or 3D condition, resulting in less loading of the system so that it saves around 40% of power-consumption.

The SiS968 Southbridge chipset is paired with the SiS671FX Northbridge chipset to provide most powerful performance. SiS proprietary MuTIOL technology provides transmission bandwidth up to 1GB/s between Northbridge and Southbridge. The SiS968 Southbridge chipset features 2 SATA 3G connectors to provide up to 300MB/s of data transmission for each storage device.
