SiS has supplied the world with a fresh viewing of the SiS730s, an integrated single chip for the AMD Athlon and Duron platforms, in the run-up to launch day.

The SiS730S begins pre-production in September in its own 0.18 micron wafer fab. It is assembled in what SiS claims is the highest pin count (672) plastic BGA package in the world.

The SiS730S costs US$42 for OEM quantities of 10,000 units. Already, there is a fairly hefty roster of confirmed OEMs on the SiS Web site, with Acer, Asus and PC Chips among heavyweight customers.

The Taiwanese company reckons that the SiS730s will have the field to itself so far as AMD Athlon and Duron integrated chip solutions are concerned for the next 12 months.

SiS put the technology through its paces in a press conference, held in Taiwan on Monday, 7 August, the first time it has been seen in public since Computex in June.

The SiS730S is designed to optimise Athlon and Duron CPU performance. Its feature set includes AGP 4x interface and ATA-100 IDE controller, the built-in SiS300,a 128-bit 3D/2D graphics chip and PC-133 SDRAM.

You can run through the entire spec yourself at the SiS Web site. ®
