SiS And VIA To Launch Vista-Ready Chipsets Next Quarter
SiS and VIA are set to begin volume shipments of integrated chipsets that support the upcoming Microsoft Windows Vista operating system, according to the two chipset makers.
The Vista OS requires support for DirectX 9.0, which earlier integrated chipset versions from the two Taiwan-based chipset makers did not provide.
SiS has scheduled two Vista-ready integrated chipsets – the SiS770 for the AMD platform and the SiS670 for the Intel solution – with the former being launched in the first quarter of next year and the latter by the third quarter, the company said. Volume shipments are expected to begin before the updated OS release date, the company noted.
VIA plans to launch both its PM890 for the Intel platform and K8M890 for the AMD platform in the first quarter of 2006, the company stated.
Microsoft Windows Vista is anticipated to hit the market by October 2006, sources at Taiwan chipset makers hinted.
