SiS today announced that its P4-supporting high-end and PCI Express-based chipset SiS656 will be used by AVL (Advanced Validation Labs) in DDR2-667 memory test certification platform, making it a key core logic chipset to provide AVL in DDR2-667 platform validation. In continuity of the support in DDR2 DRAM, SiS656 platform has passed DDR2-533 memory validation testing at AVL. As DDR2-667 is poised to become the industrys mainstream memory standard, SiS R&D team has been actively promoting this new technology in step with this trend. SiS656 has recently completed the co-validation for DDR2-667 memory specification with the three major international memory makers, Elpida, Micron and Samsung. Motherboards and computer systems equipped with SiS656 chipset will have optimal high-speed memory compatibility and stability.

SiS today announced that its P4-supporting high-end and PCI Express-based
chipset SiS656 will be used by AVL (Advanced Validation Labs) in DDR2-667 memory
test certification platform, making it a key core logic chipset to provide AVL
in DDR2-667 platform validation.

AVL is a technology services company specializing in the pre-production and
post-production testing and validation of memory to industries, including
motherboard manufacturers, chip makers and DRAM fabricators. Products selected
by AVL as the strict certification platform means the superb compatibility and
stability as well as the quality assurance and promise to end customers.

In continuity of the support in DDR2 DRAM, SiS656 platform has passed DDR2-533
memory validation testing at AVL. As DDR2-667 is poised to become the industrys
mainstream memory standard, SiS R&D team has been actively promoting this new
technology in step with this trend. "The SiS656 chipsets lead and qualification
for DDR2-667 memory specification underscore product quality and performance,
and highlights SiS excellent technology and innovation in chipset design," Larry
Ho, Director of Technical Labs, Advanced Validation Labs. "AVLs readiness of
SiS656 as one of the standard platform for DDR2-667 certification test
acknowledges SiS long-term commitment in achieving compatibility and stability
between chipsets and memory products."

SiS656 has recently completed the co-validation for DDR2-667 memory
specification with the three major international memory makers, Elpida, Micron
and Samsung. Motherboards and computer systems equipped with SiS656 chipset will
have optimal high-speed memory compatibility and stability. Supporting PCI
Express, SiS656 is the perfect match for high-speed memory DDR2-667, which
satisfies new-generation system requirements for high transfer rates, low power
consumption and high memory capacity. The SiS656 chipsets outstanding design
clearly demonstrates stability and maturity in SiS’ technology development. It
also points up the close partnership between SiS and international memory
makers.
