ULi Electronics Inc. (ULi) unveils M1695 north bridge- the latest low power
and high performance HyperTransport™ PCI Express™ tunnel chipset for all the
Athlon™ 64 based processors including Socket 754, 940 and 939 CPUs. ULi is at
the forefront of delivering yet another world’s first and high performance M1695
chipset solution which supports TGi :(Triple Graphics Interface) simultaneous
PCI Express x16, AGP 8X, PCI graphics interfaces.

ULi’s M1695 is designed to support extensive range of applications including the
mainstream desktop and mobile PCs, high performance workstation, and high
reliability servers.

M1695′s innovative HyperTransport tunnel architecture integrates non-blocking
symmetrical HyperTransport™ 2.0 links which enables motherboard manufacturers
and system integrators to pair up M1695 with other high performance
HyperTransport-based chipsets and bridge devices either natively or via the HTX™
connector. When coupled with ULi’s M1567 south bridge, the combination offers
motherboard manufacturers the unprecedented capability to support PCI Express
x16, AGP 8X, PCI graphics cards simultaneously on the same mainboard. Such
capability makes it possible to create a fully surrounding virtual reality
environment using multiple high resolution displays driven by the three graphics
tecnologies residing in the same computer system.

With both the upstream and the downstream HyperTransport links each running at 4
GT/sec and beyond, optimum performance are ensured between M1695 and the
connecting CPU as well as with other HyperTransport devices.

M1695 features a bi-directional PCI Express x16 link (4 GBytes/sec peak
bandwidth per direction) that is configurable as two x8 links to sustain the
ever demanding 3D graphics requirement for high resolution. M1695 provides
additional PCI Express links in either 2 x1 or 1 x4 (or x1 or x2) configuration
to support high-speed I/O devices such as network controllers and storage
controllers.

“M1695 offers an amazingly flexible and scalable array of interconnects that can
effortlessly transport multimedia data across the HyperTransport and PCI Express
interfaces.” said Alex Kuo, President of ULi. “The versatility of M1695 enables
system manufacturers to build powerful PC systems with ease and at reasonably
low cost.”

“As the market begins a widespread transition to PCI Express, we make sure that
our customers will be able to enjoy a smooth upgrade path from their current AGP
to PCI Express graphics cards.” said Jerry Chou, General Manager of ASUStek
Desktop Business Unit. “ULi’s M1695 chipset not only enable us to build
motherboards which embraces these attributes, but it also offer greater design
flexibility which saves us time and effort.”
