Silicon Integrated Systems, a well known core-logic maker, today unveiled its new I/O controller designed for next-generation applications with PCI Express bus. The move indicates readiness of core-logic hardware developers to the next decade of PCI Express-based applications.
The new SiS965L South Bridge will be compatible with current SiS chipsets, such as SiS661FX, SiS648FX, SiS655FX, SiS655TX, SiS748, SiS755, SiS755FX and SiS760. Manufacturers can benefit from greater compatibility and improved sales and support by using a current generation SiS chipset updated to the new PCI-Express standard with the SiS965L I/O controller.
SiS965L features 2 PCI-Express x1 ports, 6 PCI ports, 8 USB 2.0 ports, 8-channel sound, 10/100Mb/s Ethernet, 2 Serial ATA-150 ports with hot plug functionality and RAID, 2-channel Parallel ATA-33/66/100/133.
SiS said its new SiS965L is available immediately giving SiS customers the opportunity to have PCI-Express functionality with today’s generation of SiS chipsets.
