SiS today launched its SiS755FX chipset which supports 939pin Athlon64 FX processors.

  The SiS755FX Chipset employs SiS’ proprietary HyperStreaming™ Engine technology and, furthermore, amazingly integrates with AMD’s exclusive 1GHz HyperTransport™ technology as well as the 8/16-bits connection technology to deliver the Front Side Bus (FSB) transmission speed up to 8GB/sec (2000MT). SiS755FX perfectly works closely with 939pins AMD Athlon™ 64 FX CPU to ensure the optimal performance of bandwidth, and also achieves low-latency and high-efficiency in data transmission. The AGP 8X interface allows the system to adopt the most advanced graphic cards in the market for the optimal graphic transmission. Moreover, the MuTIOL® 1G technology, embedded in SiS755FX chipset, ensures the smoothest data transfer between South and North Bridges.

Paired with SiS’ latest South Bridge Chipset SiS964, SiS755FX completes the entire system. By integrating with supporting for Serial ATA high-speed transfer interface, the brand-new South Bridge Chipset SiS964 not only supports Dual-Channel parallel ATA, but also features two independent Serial ATA150 connection ports, which offer storage devices with data transmission speed up to 150MB/sec. Other special features include 8 built-in USB2.0 ports, which meet the requirement for increasing peripheral device connections, full 5.1 channel surround sound, V.90 modem and Ethernet network. The SiS964 also supports Multiple RAID disk array modes, including RAID0, RAID1, and JBOD, which further enhance the stability and performance of the operating environment.
