SiS655 Heralds Dual-Channel Era

SiS655 Heralds Dual-Channel Era

[Taipei, Taiwan. April 23, 2003] The SiS655 chipset from Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) arrived just as the major motherboard companies were exploring the huge potential for dual-channel DDR products. Due to the right timing and specifications, the company¡¦s first dual-channel memory controller is set to become its high-end flagship . Major motherboard manufacturers including Aopen, Asustek, Gigabyte, Iwill and Micro-Star International (MSI) have been impressed with the chipset¡¦s performance, in particular the bandwidth it delivers and a host of new motherboards have already adopted it and been launched globally. Power users and game aficionados, who recognized the solution¡¦s excellent price-performance ratio, have also responded favorably and as dual-channel demand takes off the chipset¡¦s position in the market is ensured.    
 
Some model numbers will differ between territories, however the best-known motherboards using the SiS655 include the Aopen AX45-4D Max, Asus P4SDX, Gigabyte GA-SINXP1394 (GA-8SQ800 Ultra2), Iwill P4DR and MSI 655Max . Each of these targets specific market segments, with specifications and add-on features varying according to the needs of the users and the manufacturer¡¦s pricing strategy. 
 
Aopen¡¦s AX45-4D Max complements the SiS655 and the SiS963 media I/O controller, provides on-board IEEE1394 connectivity. 10/100 Ethernet is provided by Realtek¡¦s 8100BL and the Realtek ALC650E provides 6-channel audio. Aopen includes effective backup, recovery and debugging solutions including the companies own DieHard BIOS, EzRestore and Dr Voice II.   
 
The Asus P4SDX adopts the SiS963L media I/O controller that, in addition to standard I/O functionality, offers 10/100 Ethernet and an S/PDIF (RCA) optical interface. Asustek¡¦s proprietary ¡§instant music¡¨ function allows users to play audio CDs without needing to boot their system and the ¡§CrashFree2 BIOS¡¨ feature offers unmatched security and reliability. The motherboard also comes with a 5.25-inch ¡§J-panel¡¨ that can be installed to bring the USB 2.0, S/PDIF out, microphone-in and line-out connectors to the front of a PC.  
 
Gigabyte¡¦s GA-SINXP1394 stands out when placed with other SiS655-based motherboards. The highlighting of different connectors with a variety of colors leaves a vivid impression. The motherboard comes with three daughter boards: a DPS (dual power system) module, an IEEE1394 extension and a
Serial ATA expansion card. Gigabit Ethernet and dual RAID support top off the long list of features. With so many ¡§duals¡¨ ¡V dual power, dual logical processors, dual channel, dual RAID, dual BIOS and dual cooling ¡V Gigabyte has coined the phrase ¡§ The 6-Dual Miracle¡¨ to promote this product. On Gigabyte¡¦s website, users can find three SiS655 motherboards: the GA-8SQ800, GA-8SQ800 Ultra and this board, the GA-SINXP1394.  
 
Iwill has launched the P4DR-SATA with serial ATA and IEEE1394 support implemented alongside the standard SiS655 features (a board without these additional I/O options implemented is also available). Overclocking is available through Iwill¡¦s MicroStepping technology and the board offers on-board, six-channel audio via Realtek¡¦s ALC650.  
 
The MSI 655Max completes this list of leading-edge boards. The 655Max series offers three models: the 655MAX-L , 655MAX-LS and 655MAX-FISR. The 655MAX-LS offers 10/100 Ethernet and serial ATA interface I/O, while t he top ranking 655MAX-FISR offers gigabit Ethernet, serial ATA RAID and IEEE1394.
