ULi M1695 PCIe/AGP Socket 939 chipset for the AMD Athlon 64

Wesley from AnandTech checked out ULi's new M1695 chipset for the AMD Athlon 64 platform:
Just a month after the Computex launch, ULi has provided a Reference Board for their new chipset based on the M1695 coupled with a M1567 South Bridge. This combination is significant because it provides a full x16 PCIe video slot with an AGP 8X slot. ULi tells us that this is a full-performance AGP slot without compromise. We have seen others try to provide AGP support (ECS, Biostar) on a PCIe board by deriving the AGP from PCI, but these solutions were 50 to 60% the performance of a true 8X AGP, negating much of the reason for the AGP slot. This ULi solution, however, is a full-performance AGP 8X, combined with a full-performance x16 PCIe.
The reviewer seems to be pleased with this new chipset. Check out AnandTech's conclusions AnandTech
