ATI SB600 southbridge to arrive in May

Billy Wang, vice president for Asia Pacific and China at ATI Technologies, stated yesterday that the company's new SB600 southbridge chip will be introduced in May. Wang was responding to recent speculation that ULi Electronics may no longer provide southbridges for ATI-based motherboard platforms, following its acquisition by ATI-rival Nvidia.

According to Wang, ATI aims to boost 2006 revenues with new products, while lowering its capital expenditure (capex) and better controlling its production costs to boost profits, after failing to meet profit expectations last year. ATI has completed its new product roadmap for this year, including the upcoming SB600 to be manufactured at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC).
