PlexWriter 40/12/40S Ultra SCSI will arrive to retail in February 2003 for about 299 euro (w/o VAT). The retail bundle will include the drive itself, one CD-R and one CD-RW blank, power cable, Nero + InCD, Plextor PlexTools software, and userís manual.
And thatís the picture of SiS746FX (A2 stepping) + SiS963LUA (C1 stepping) bundle:
SS81B-based testbed also featured AMD Athlon XP 2700+ with 166MHz FSB (Thoroughbred-B), and was tested with DDR333 and DDR400 memory.
The complete test readout from PC Mark2002 and 3D Mark2001SE is here (in Chinese, as you guess, but graphs are clear). Results from SPEC Viewperf 7.0 for Windows are here, from Sysmark2002 here, from Unreal Tourment 2003 and other game benchmarks here.
Any conclusions about SiS746FX performance are up to you. I, personally, think the chipset can be placed somewhere between KT400 and nForce2.
