New SiS Component Ready For PCI-Express

From SiS’ press release:

Silicon Integrated Systems Corp. (SiS), today announced the release of it’s newest high performance Southbridge for the PC market. The 965L supports the new PCI-Express standard for high-speed, next generation peripheral connectivity, and is totally compatible with current-generation SiS chipsets.

The new PCI-Express standard is phasing out the standard PCI slots that have been the basis of the PC hardware I/O system for the past decade. With PCI-Express, users can expect their PC’s to be upgradeable to the next generation of high-performance peripheral devices designed specifically for the higher bandwidth that PCI-Express offers, such as graphic cards, WLAN cards, sound cards, HDD, capture cards and printers.

The new SiS965L Southbridge will be compatible with current SiS chipsets, such as SiS661FX, SiS648FX, SiS655FX, SiS655TX, SjiS748, 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 Southbridge.

The SiS965L features a robust feature set for today’s demanding and varied PC applications, including support for 2 PCI-Express ports, 8 USB 2.0 ports, 8 channel sound, 10/100 LAN, 2 SATA (supporting hot plug functionality) and 4 PATA. According to Michael Chen, SiS President and CEO, “The SiS965L brings the SiS product line into the future, giving SiS customers the opportunity to have PCI-Express functionality with today’s generation of SiS chipsets.”
