The essential guide to IT transformation

Taiwanese chip company Silicon Integrated Systems (SIS) claimed it is the first company to produce a Pentium II chipset with integrated 3D graphics. Two weeks ago, SIS announced the SIS530 for socket seven. The SIS 620 chipset is PC99 and PCI 2.2 compliant, supports 66/75/83/100MHz synchronous and asynchronous host/SDRAM bus frequencies, and has a PC 100 DRAM controller supporting three DIMMs and up to 1.5Gb main memory. According to the company, the SIS 620 integrates its own 3D AGP solution with additional enhancements, including a 100MHz host bus. Its AGP solution allows for a dual 100MHz 64-bit data path with transfers of 800Mbps. SIS said it will start sampling the chip in September, with mass production in October and will sell it at prices of $29 in lots of 10,000. ®
