SiS yesterday unveiled the mobile incarnation of its SiS741 integrated chipset for the AMD Athlon XP.

The SiSM741 supports a 333MHz frontside bus and DDR SDRAM clocked at up to 400MHz. The integrated DirectX 7 graphics core - SiS' Real 256E - utilises a portion of the main memory as video RAM, communicating at the memory's own speed rather than that standard AGP 8x connection rate. It can support display resolutions of up to 1920 x 1600.

The chipset's South Bridge is SiS' SiS963, which provides Serial ATA, ATA-133, six USB 2.0 ports, 5.1-channel surround sound, a 56Kbps modem and 10/100Mbps Ethernet.

SiS is also touting its SiS162 WLAN chipset with the part in a bid to appeal system builders keen to target the Wi-Fi market.

Either way, SiS expects notebooks based on the SiSM741 to appear next quarter. ®
