Back in the year 2002 Silicon Integrated Systems spun off its graphics division into separate company called XGI Technology. Four years and one failed product lineup later, XGI was partly acquired by ATI Technologies. Last week SiS decided to absorb the remaining of XGI and the latter again became part of SiS.

According to a statement posted on XGI's web-site, "in order to provide the better customer service and integrate the enterprise resources" XGI has merged with SiS Corp. A person familiar with the matter told X-bit labs that the latter has been working on the take-over of XGI for several months.

"SiS started taking control of XGI back in June, SiS bought out XGI on the 1st of October, a full and complete takeover," the source said.

Silicon Integrated Systems has essentially quit the market of chipsets for personal computers (PCs) several years ago in order to concentrate on various supporting logic, including special-purpose controllers. Among other things, SiS presently offers controllers for SSDs, HDTVs, portable electronics and so on. Given the fact that XGI has been concentrated on embedded graphics market in the recent four years, it looks like SiS and XGI are a perfect match.

Another one bites the dust. And why is that? Hmm .. maybe because they've been shut out from the market by the great INTEL mafia .. ?
