Those awfully-clever SiS folks have developed a new $39 chipset for AMD's Athlon. Based on the SiS630, the SiS730S integrates the north bridge, south bridge, and a 128-bit 3D graphics accelerator (SiS300) into a single piece of silicon.

It also features a 56kbps Modem, Fast Ethernet, 1/10Mb Home PNA and IDE ATA100, along with hardware DVD playback and 3D audio. Designed for PC133 SDRAM, the SiS730S can also support an AGP 4x slot to allow for graphics upgrades.

The SiS730S will start sampling this month with mass production starting in August. The company claims practically all major OEMs and motherboard manufacturers have signed up for the chip and shipments are expected to start in Q3.

We assume Intel is not included. ®
