The SiS735 Chipset


By: Dan Mepham

The SiS735 is a single-chip, fully integrated chipset supporting AMD Athlon and Duron processors using the EV6 bus. The 735 is one of the first single-chip chipsets we’ve dealt with, and offers serveral distinct advantages over the competition. Primarily, the single-chip approach reduces cost, not only in the packaging of the chipset itself, but in motherboard designs as well. Secondly, the single-chip approach allows for much greater throughput between the processor/memory/graphics controller (typically the Northbridge) and the I/O controller (typically the Southbridge) than conventional designs allow (even designs including V-Link or AHA).

The SiS735 supports up to 6 rows of either DDR or SDR SDRAM, allowing up to 1.5 GB of total system memory. Both PC2100 DDR and PC133 SDRAM are supported. The chipset also supports AGP modes 1, 2 and 4X with Fast Writes.

The I/O subsystem supports two IDE channels using the ATA100 standard. The integrated chipset also supports on-board integrated 10/100BaseT networking, and AC’97 audio. Up to 6 USB ports can be supported.
