Taiwanese mobo makers up in arms over 810

SiS picking up business

A report in Asian magazine Eurotrade is suggesting that the number of errata (bugs) in the 810 chipset is causing many Taiwanese motherboard manufacturers to complain vociferously. The magazine says that follows another fix for the 810, for the real time clock (RTC), which Intel confirmed to us yesterday was shipping. An earlier problem with the 810 chipset caused incompatibilities with microprocessors which caused machines to hang. The magazine reports that SiS (Silicon Integrated Systems) is picking up business from Taiwanese motherboard manufacturers, angry with the problems. ®
