Silicon Integrated Systems Corp. on Thursday said it currently existing chipsets would support forthcoming processors by Advanced Micro Devices that will come in the so-called Socket AM2 form-factor. The chipset designer also disclosed the majority of peculiarities of the forthcoming processors by AMD.

“SiS leads the industry once again with the announcement of supporting AMD Socket AM2 CP2, which highlights the extreme compatibility and flexibility of SiS’ experience in chipset design,” a statement by SiS reads.

Silicon Integrated Systems confirmed that the new generation of AMD Socket AM2 central processing units (CPUs) include embedded dual-channel DDR2 memory controller PC2-5300 (DDR2 667MHz) memory and 1000MHz HyperTransport bus speed, something which was expected to face a boost to 1333MHz. AMD Socket AM2 processors will include the Athlon 64 X2, Athlon 64 FX, Athlon 64 and Sempron series microprocessors, the chipset company indicated.

According to SiS, the new processors will be compatible with SiS756, SiS761GX, SiSM760 and SiSM760GX chipsets designed for mobile and desktop computers.

According to Mercury Research, last year SiS commanded less than 10% of the world’s core-logic market.
