SiS to support K7, Pentium III

And Camino in its sights too

An interview obtained by Jonathan Hou at PC One has revealed SiS future chipset roadmap. (The full interview is here). Hou interviewed SiS executive Sylvia Lin, who claimed that Intel had "copied" her company's approach to integrating graphics. At the same time she confirmed that SiS will support the K7, and will continue to support the Super7 platform. She said that SiS will certainly compete with the Intel Camino chipset and Via's Apollo Pro Plus. Lin also revealed benchmarks for the SiS 300 graphics chip in both 2D and 3D modes. She said that practically all Taiwanese motherboard manufacturers are using its SiS 530 technology. She also said that the licensing deal SiS struck with Intel made no difference to its relationship with AMD, Cyrix or other x.86 manufacturers. ®
