Low cost platform for Netburst processors

SiS has announced nine motherboard manufacturers have adopted its mainstream SiS662 integrated graphics chipset for Intel processors. These manufacturers include first tier manufacturers such as Asus, Foxconn and ECS. Current available SiS662 motherboards include the Asus P5SD2-MX, Universal abit SG-95, ECS 662-M, DFI 662-TMG, Foxconn 6627MA-RSH, MSI 662M, PC Chips P31G, PC Partner SiS662MS7-Z06 and Shuttle FS30.

The SiS662 chipset features support for Intel Pentium 4 and Pentium D processors with an 800 MHz front-side bus. There’s no mention of Conroe support with the SiS662. Users seeking a low cost platform for Conroe may have to wait for the upcoming SiS 672 with its DirectX 10 compatible graphics core. The Mirage 1 graphics core is integrated which is nothing special but is capable of hardware accelerated DVD decoding. While the Mirage 1 graphics core is AGP 8x based, SiS662 based motherboards will offer a PCI Express x16 expansion capabilities for external graphics.

Intel also just recently introduced a chipset to compete with SiS 662. The Intel 946GZ was silently released on July 3, 2006.
