SiS 656FX

The AMD and Intel Energy Crisis
By

Last but not least we included another mainstream chipset product for Intel’s LGA 775 Pentium family. 656FX is SiS’ addition to its chipset portfolio for supporting dual core processors, dual DDR2-667, Gigabit Ethernet and four port SATA II (1.5 G/s only). Since this chipset is still very young we had to use the reference boards rather than a final product from a motherboard manufacturer.
