News : Gigabyte stellt SiS 655FX Mainboards vor

Mit dem GA-8S655FX Ultra präsentiert Gigabyte ein Mainboard auf Basis des SiS 655FX. Der SiS 655FX unterstützt sowohl FSB800, Dual Channel DDR400, AGP 8x als auch Hyper Threading. Gigabytes 8S655FX Ultra hat aber noch einiges mehr zu bieten.

Gigabit Ethernet, Serial ATA, Firewire, onboard Sound und IDE Raid gehören ebenfalls zu den Features der Platine.

SiS' Hyper Streaming Engine (HSE) soll dem Board zudem eine hervorragende Performance verschaffen. Diese Technik erlaubt es, Daten durch eine spezielle Optimierung je nach Anforderung entweder gestreamt oder aber in einzelnen Paketen zu übertragen. Die Southbridge ist über die MuTIOL Technologie mit einem 1 GB/s schnellen Bus an die Northbridge angebunden. Zudem verfügt das Mainboard über die bekannten Features einer Gigabyte Platine. Neben dem GA-8S655FX Ultra stellte Gigabyte auch noch zwei weitere Modelle für den kleineren Geldbeutel vor, das GA-8S655FX-L und GA-8S655FX. Preise für die drei neuen Modelle gab Gigabyte jedoch noch nicht bekannt.

Taipei, Taiwan, 3rd Sep. 2003 -- Gigabyte Technology, the leading motherboard manufacturer proudly unveils the new P4 Titan™ 8S655FX Ultra motherboard. The Gigabyte P4 Titan™ 8S655FX Ultra motherboard is the ultimate solution for the latest processor supporting - 800MHz FSB Intel® Pentium® 4 processor with Hyper-Threading Technology. Powered by the SiS® top performing 655FX chipset and a multiplicity of cutting edge technologies, the P4 Titan™ 8S655FX Ultra motherboard is designed to be full function performance & gaming oriented solutions. The architecture of an 800MHz FSB, dual channel DDR 400, AGP 8X, and Hyper-Threading Technology combine to provide a potential framework for excellent performance while Hyper Streaming Engine (HSE) empowered by SiS enhances entire system performance and stability. It features with Gigabit Ethernet solution that delivers optimized network throughput & platform performance, Serial ATA, IEEE 1394, and IDE RAID are integrated to provide superior data input/output performance and data protection. The Gigabyte P4 Titan™ 8S655FX Ultra absolutely delivers to the maximum platform unduplicated computing power and rock-solid stability.

HyperStreaming™ Engine technology is new architecture to optimize system for “low latency“ with single stream, “pipelining“ and “concurrent execution“ with multiple stream, “prioritized channel“ with specific stream, “smart flow control“ and “intelligent arbitration“ with smart stream. The bandwidth reaches up to 1GB/s between north and south bridge by MuTIOL® technology. With the latest 800MHz FSB Intel Pentium® 4 processor with Hyper-Threading Technology which delivers a supersonic high-speed bandwidth up to 6.4GB/s between the CPU and the MCH (Memory Controller Hub). Dual Channel DDR 400 memory architecture which bandwidth reaches up to 6.4GB/s, balancing data transfer loading among the CPU and memory. Such complete framework accomplishes a faultless platform.

Several leading technologies are also implemented on this new motherboard. Such as Gigabit Ethernet connection, it provides high bandwidth up to 1000Mbps for users accessing data rapidly from local area network. Highly anticipated Texas Instrument IEEE 1394 interface is also available; it enhances PC connectivity for consumer electronics A/V appliances, storage peripherals and portable devices. An on-board 6-channel AC“97 CODEC brings incredible sound quality especially with its (UAJ) Universal Audio Jack feature, users won't have to worry about how to install speakers correctly.

In this high performance platform, GA-8S655FX Ultra, integrates GigaRAID chipset, it provides RAID 0 (Data Striping), RAID 1 (Data Mirroring), RAID (0+1) and JBOD function applied by Gigabyte on desktop motherboard, which is popular on servers and network-attached storage delivering both data protection and data fetching performance to meet intensive applications demands. Serial-ATA interface is provided by SiS964 which delivers high I/O bandwidth up to 150MB/s with RAID 0, 1 ,and JBOD function., bringing I/O peripherals to a new era in high-speed storage solution. As Gigabyte patented DualBIOS, it assures the motherboard“s stability and reliability.

Also featuring in other 2 models in this new series, GA-8S655FX-L and GA-8S655FX, the integrated Serial-ATA interface, IEEE1394, and breath taking 6 channel audio with UAJ and more, tends to deliver users another smart selection while considering on budget limitation. In spite of features limitation, the performance and stability of the platforms are strictly tested and approved by Gigabyte Technology engineers before handing over to end users.
