Default ULi M1695 Athlon 64 Chipset

New name on an old face, and a new player in the game.


Notice page 2 of the review...
ULi has designed its PCI-E graphics link with Dual Graphics in mind...

The M1567 uses the HyperTransport protocol to connect the Northbridge to the Southbridge. ULi has stood out in terms of connection speed, ULi allows for a 16x uplink and 16x downlink connection from North to SouthbridgeÂ’s in order to accommodate extremely bandwidth intense products...

First off the unique design of the Southbridge has a built in AGP 8x graphics controller. ThatÂ’s right, itÂ’s on the Southbridge. Rather than building it into the Northbridge, the AGP is moved to the Southbridge...

A new Southbridge is on the way that uses a 16x up and 16x down link to the Northbridge for a couple major upgrades – the first is that the newer Southbridge will have SATA-II support with 4 ports. The other is ULi plans to add a second PCI-E x16 lane - that’s right - a dedicated PCI-E x16. This means that ULi will have the first Dual Graphic system (or even Quad Graphics or 4-way SLI maybe *grins*) that has two dedicated x16 PCI-E ports. If you want to run three graphics cards, this can be done by splitting up the PCI-E x16 on the Northbridge into two PCI-E x8 slots and either having an AGP or a second PCI-E x16 slot, ULi has thought of the server market in great detail....

ULi also has another trump card up its sleeve. ULI has a Southbridge chipset that currently runs on the PCI-E interface which allows a manufacturer the ability to add in a second or third Southbridge onto their boards, simply by adding in the ULi chip onto a free PCI-E x1 link. This means ULi can bridge its SATA support and expand it from the current 2 up to 4 ports, and with the new Southbridge, from 4 up to 8, making the design that much more flexible...
Be sure to check out the benchmarks and comparisons... and this is just an early reference board.
