ULi plans new AMD K8 chipsets

Posted on Monday, Feb 21 2005 @ 18:54 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
ULi plans mass production of a new all-in-one AMD Athlon64 processor chipset in Q2 2005 and by year-end a chipset with dual-channel DDR2 memory support.
The all-in-one solution, the M1697, will follow another ULi northbridge for the AMD K8 platform, the M1695. Both products are expected to be ready for mass production around May. The M1697 is very interesting because it’s designed to integrate a lot of features, including support for legacy interfaces such as parallel ATA, and new prospective technologies such as SATA II and High-Definition Audio. In addition, the chip has some security functions that support the TPM (Trusted Platform Module) 1.2 specification developed by TCG (Trusted Computing Group).
