SiS has begun volume production of its PCI Express South Bridge chip, the SiS965L, Taiwanese sources claim.

However, since SiS has already promised that mobos based on the part will ship next month, that's perhaps only to be expected.

Certainly, SiS is expected to showcase the South Bridge and motherboards that use it next week at the annual Computex hardware show in Taipei.

The 965L works with SiS' LGA775-based SiS656 North Bridge and its AMD-oriented SiS756 part.

VIA and ALi are expected to show their own PCI Express South Bridge parts at Computex, but source cited by DigiTimes claim they will not come to market until Q3. The two companies' PCI Express South Bridge parts are dubbed the VT8251 and M1573, respectively, the sources say.
