Low cost platform for Netburst processors
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
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

On the AMD side no Itel chipset present :)
As far as I remember SIS has the most stable/issueless chipset series since the 755. Only the linux drivers for 965/966 were bit flimsy but that was minor and AFAIK corrected.
ATI is comming close with SB600. And K8T800Pro/VT8237R is now pretty mature too.
On intel side; i810 is not perfect..., initial EG/EG2 drivers are a piece of crap too.
Otherwise intel has the most consistent quality o chipset products, that's for sure. The problem is the platform issues many time overweight the chipset's quality.
