SiS to make Southbridge for Xbox2?

Posted on Monday, Aug 25 2003 @ 13:45 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
It is already known that the Xbox will have a graphic solution and northbridge chipset from ATI and now DigiTimes heared that Microsoft is having talks with SiS (Silicon Integrated Systems) to provide a south bridge for his upcoming Xbox2 console.

  Some market rumors reported that SiS had already landed the order, but company sources declined to confirm it. As the Xbox2 will not be released until 2005, it is still too early to say anything for sure, the sources said.

According to market rumors, SiS has also landed chipset orders from IBM and European distributor Medion. The company, however, refused to comment on the reports
