Daily Tech writes SiS's upcoming 770 chipset may be a good low cost alternative to NVIDIA's nForce 500 for the AMD platform:
We recently had the opportunity to get an inside glimpse at SiS, the now undisputed second largest PC core logic provider in Taiwan. With NVIDIA's recent acquisition to acquire ULi, many have hoped for an underdog in the relatively quiet core logic market.

SiS claims that they will have DDR3 support on the 665 Northbridge by Q3'06, making it the first chipset capable of DDR3 support by our playbook. Whether or not motherboard adopters actually incorporate DDR3 into production designs is another issue entirely. However, given the fact that SiS has privately told us that the company will enter the DRAM market, it could be that SiS might have an ace up its sleeve.
