Intel to Increase SiS Chipset Orders

This third quarter, Intel Corporation plans to boost its orders to Silicon Integrated Systems Corporation, which will decrease Intel's chipset market share but will also maximize Intel's profit margins, as the company will not have to sell low-cost chipsets to support sales of its microprocessors. Intel will order SiS671 and SiS672 core-logic sets from SiS in Q3 2007, according to DigiTimes. Currently the world's largest chipmaker only uses SiS662 chipset with its value Desktop Board D201GLY. Adding two more core-logic models means that Intel may plan to reduce the share of its own low-cost chipsets among its own-brand motherboards.

SiS671 and 672 core-logic sets support integrated DirectX 9-compliant graphics core, DDR2 memory and Intel Core 2 as well as Pentium D processors. SiS' quarterly revenues and chipset shipments are expected to increase 30-50% due to orders from Intel. This will not only improve the minor chipset designer financial results, but will also allow the firm to claim much higher revenues than its rival Via Technologies.

For your average everyday pc user SIS is completely fine and allow many more people the chance to own a modern, powerfull pc. If you are an overclocking ubergeek/gamer/hacker then no., you probably dont want sis.

It wouldn't have been called Centrino in the first place, as these are desktop chipsets meants to be used on desktop motherboards to be installed in a desktop computer. However, you would be right if this was to be used in a laptop, as a Centrino certification only happens with an Intel chipset, Intel processor, and Intel wireless adapter.

Run for your lifes before SiS chipsets gets you!
Trow your selfs from the window!
...or from Windows?

PS: Terrible terrible chipsets, horrible, i don't know where to start about SiS.

I really want to hear what you have to say. I've never delt with SiS... only VIA, Intel, and Nvidia.
Please go on!

SiS and PCChip both suck donkey balls.

Hm, I don't like this -- namely because I've been bitten by SiS chipsets previously and prefer Intel's own chipsets when dealing with Intel based microprocessors such as the Core 2 platform.
