New motherboards using SiS748 include AK76F-400N from AOpen, K7S8XE from ASRock, KT748 from FIC, and 748Delta from MSI. Each motherboard maker has adapted exclusive technologies respectively to extend the horizon of SiS748 so as to meet different customer requirements.
AK76F-400N is a performance-centered motherboard, which demonstrates the strength of AOpen. said Bernie Tsai, president of AOpen. Either the functionality or the design of AK76F-400N has outperformed the previous versions. We will enrich the practicability of AK76F-400N to demonstrate the powerful performance of the new generation 400MHz chipset and make it the leader of the market. In addition to the RTL8100BL Ethernet chip from Realtek which provides 10/100Mbps data transfer function, AOpen applies various state-of-the-art technologies to AK76F-400N, such as the EzRestore/ProMagic HDD Crash Protection, VividBIOS auto-defined startup screen technology, and SilentTek technology, in order to optimize the functionality of AK76F-400N.
In addition to enhancing the data transfer rate between the CPU and system devices, the ultra-value K7S8XE motherboard from ASRock is equipped with the patented CPU overheat protection technology, which can activate auto power off hardware mechanism to automatically protect CPUs from damage due to overheat. Moreover, K7S8XE has four USB 2.0 ports and built-in 10/100 bps Ethernet function to meet users¡¦ demands. ¡§Athlon? XP3200+ has already made a hit in the market, and the excellent performance of SiS748 makes the CPU even more powerful. Quality is always the first choice of ASRock, and it will always be our goal to ensure our customers gaining greatest benefit from the best quality products.¡¨ Said Sterling Wu, president of ASRock.
The major difference between FIC KT748 and the other three products is the use of SiS963 south bridge controller to provide IEEE 1394 feature. Moreover, the exclusive NOVUS technology sets up a system firewall to protect BIOS against virus attack. Expandability is the key feature of FIC motherboards, that's why we have chosen SiS963 as the south bridge. We want a product that combines efficiency and effectiveness at the same time. KT748 is the solution, pointed out Ernest Chen, FIC Executive Assistant to the Chairman.
By combining the functions of SiS748 and SiS963L south bridge controller, MSI 748 Delta integrates 100mbps Ethernet interface and S/PDIF (RCA) optical interface. The excellent quality of MSI products has been the well known to the consumers. The new MSI 748 Delta marks MSI's outstanding R&D capacity in AMD platforms. Together with the excellent performance of SiS chipsets, 748 Delta will surely be the total AMD solution for consumers, exclaimed Vincent Lai, MSI Marketing Manager. Taking the advantage of various MSI exclusive technologies, 748 Delta enables users not only to upgrade BIOS and drivers easily, but also to monitor CPU temperature and adjust CPU clock at any time to ensure optimal system performance. It is a mainstream product that provides high added value.
SiS748 is also adopted by many other motherboards, such as DFI 748-AL, Jetway S748DA and IWILL K7S3, which will be launched in the market very soon.
SiS748 supports 400MHz front side bus, high-performance DDR400, AGP8X interface, MuTIOLR 1G and the forefront HyperStreaming? technology. It is the first core logic chipset on AMD platform to provide the cutting edge features in the market, said Michael Chen, president and CEO of SiS. The high recognition from customers is the best proof of SiS' achievements which become the solid foundation for further R&D development in the AMD platform.
