That’s why we tested PM based board which contained Savage4 core and was intended for the systems with Socket , and the KTA together with a video card based on the Savage4 Pro.

There is a wide range of frequencies to choose: Motherboard manufacturers announced the boards for this chipset but it still takes some time to appear on the market.
Unfortunately, we couldn’t v, the VIA KM since we do not have a board on it, but we were able to compare the chipset with other integrated solutions.
As you can see the results are not very attractive. Such boards were produced by little-known manufacturers whose market’s part was very tiny.
In Quake3 it was an integrated video adapter that lets it down. Speed characteristics were defined in comparison with the systems of the same level, and we were aimed at the VIA KM releasing right after the SiSS. Nevertheless, the chipset is intended for the value market sector.

Board manufacturers spent little money for their products what resulted in weak characteristics of the boards.
But we should mention once again that it was not a production board, but a sample. The bus connecting the hubs in Intel solutions has been extended up to Mbps bandwidth, twice exceeding PCI characteristics. Besides, there is offered a wide choice of memory settings – and the only thing missed for an overclocker is a possibility to increase core voltage. Last time we can rarely hear about a Taiwanese company Silicon Integrated Systems SiS – the last news form them were connected with an integrated solution for Socket systems – the SiS chipset.

It’s version, though, was beta – not even a release, that’s why everything can change yet. A year passed but no boards based on it could be actually seen – and it’s concerned with the fact that at a comparable price an end-user was choosing among the i and the SiS In the previous tests we showed that this solution didn’t allow using it in up-to-date graphics applications, due to low speed and definite problems in the software – particularly in API OpenGL.
Video 3Digests Video cards: The only thing that attracts is that the SiS chipset is a solution on one chip what should tell upon a board’s size; this is especially important, for example, for boards of Flex-ATX format. And VIA is not sleeping either: Intel, AMD and others have taken another way – they created a wide bus, and as for SiS, they didn’t need to build a broadway instead of a narrow path, and it was thanks to the chipset design in the form of one chip.

Well, the only thing to do is to try to get out of such situation. I’d like to mark out of the listed specs a built-in video adapter – an already known solution based on the SiS As for stability, I could only mention that the system gave 7as failures rather often, and then hung.

BioShock Infinite and Metro: A possibility to change multipliers manually was a pleasant feature, but this function turned to be unworkable. But it’s not so simple.

Although 2D image is quite good, we can’t call the SiS a successful choice. No secret that exactly this connection was of the greatest importance for modern chipsets, since IDE devices because of increasing bandwidth of their channel in case of the ATA – up to mbps laid the main load on the bus while exchanging of data between north and south bridges, what with PCI bandwidth didn’t leave a place for other devices.
In my opinion, this chipset will be actually used either for cheap integrated boards or miniature solutions from brands. SiS have noticed it and decided to gamble on the “all-in-one” solution.
Although it doesn’t widens a bus between the conditional bridges, it gives possibility to connect directly an IDE controller and a north bridge. Such choice was done due to the fact that Duron must have to seize the low PC market segment, and it correspondingly had to have chipsets.
Final words The direct competitor of the SiSS will be of course the KM chipset – and on the example of the KT, which has a similar architecture with the KM, we can see that the struggle of Socket Socket A boards w7s the low market sector won’t be so bloody.
