SiS has joined IBM and ATI as an Xbox 2 chip supplier, a document the company filed with the Taiwan Stock Exchange has revealed.

According to the filing, SiS will produce "media I/O technologies" for "future Xbox products and services". Microsoft has confirmed the content of the filing, DigiTimes reports.

The SiS announcement follows a similar statement from IBM yesterday which said Microsoft had chosen Big Blue to produce processors the "future Xbox products" - widely believed to be code for Xbox 2. Earlier this year, ATI was announced as the chosen supplier of Xbox 2 graphics chips.

In each case, it's not yet known what products the companies will contribute to Xbox 2, but in ATI's case it's likely to be a top-end Radeon and attention has centred on IBM's 64-bit PowerPC 970 - aka the G5. ®
