SiS has announced their newest Soutbridge, the SiS965 which supports PCI Express:
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 Gigabit LAN cards and Capture cards.

Gigabit Ethernet also promises huge potential, with a 10 fold increase in bandwidth over the standard 100Mbps Ethernet commonly in use today. Applications that can benefit today from this technology are in local area networks, where information is being shared across servers between PCs. With the SiS965 solution, Gigabit Ethernet is integrated which provides for both sufficient bandwidth support and a lower lost structure than using an external PCI or PCIE interface structure.

SiS965 also features a robust feature set for today’s demanding and varied PC applications, including support for 8 USB 2.0 ports, AC 97 7.1 channel sound, 4 SATA (supporting hot plug functionality) and 4 PATA Devices.
