SiS 655FX: Reference Motherboard By SiS, Contined
Here it is: The new one. Its name is 964, sounds like a very old Porsche model, but in fact has nothing to do with it.
Now that's nice: Serial ATA for free. The SiS964 southbridge supports two devices.

USB, Ethernet, LAN, audio...
... even with digital output. Not bad for a reference board. But hey, it's meant to demonstrate how good the product works - including the sound unit.

Although the driver CDs are not important for you, the picture looks nice when you put the two directly to one another.
