Intel closes door for ATI, invites SiS

Posted on Saturday, Nov 18 2006 @ 03:40 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Now that ATI has been acquired by AMD, Intel has removed the upcoming Radeon Xpress based D103GGV Gem Valley motherboard from its roadmap that included an ATI chipset.

Instead they now added one with a SiS chipset:
The current D102GGC2 Grant County 2 based on ATI’s Radeon Xpress 200 is still on the latest roadmap, and a few boards have even made it out the door. Intel’s latest Desktop Board roadmap lists mostly motherboards powered by Intel’s in-house developed chipsets. On the other hand, there is one exception that’s expected in Q2’07; the new D201GLY Little Valley. Intel Desktop Board D201GLY Little Valley is currently expected to be powered by a SIS 662 chipset and feature a mini ITX form factor. The SIS 662 chipset was previously released in early July.
