SiS today announced the release of its newest high performance
Southbridge for the PC market. The 965L supports the new PCI-Express standard
for high-speed, next generation peripheral connectivity, and is totally
compatible with current-generation SiS chipsets. The new PCI-Express standard is
phasing out the standard PCI slots that have been the basis of the PC hardware
I/O system for the past decade. With PCI-Express, users can expect their PCs to
be upgradeable to the next generation of high-performance peripheral devices
designed specifically for the higher bandwidth that PCI-Express offers, such as
graphic cards, WLAN cards, sound cards, HDD, capture cards and printers.

The new SiS965L Southbridge will be compatible with current
SiS chipsets, such as SiS661FX, SiS648FX, SiS655FX, SiS655TX, SjiS748, SiS755,
SiS755FX and SiS760. Manufacturers can benefit from greater compatibility and
improved sales and support by using a current generation SiS chipset updated to
the new PCI-Express standard with the SiS965L Southbridge. The SiS965L features
a robust feature set for todays demanding and varied PC applications, including
support for 2 PCI-Express ports, 8 USB 2.0 ports, 8 channel sound, 10/100 LAN, 2
SATA (supporting hot plug functionality) and 4 PATA. According to Michael Chen,
SiS President and CEO, "The SiS965L brings the SiS product line into the future,
giving SiS customers the opportunity to have PCI-Express functionality with
todays generation of SiS chipsets."
