Hmmm..... So its just a different chipset manufacturer.

Is it better or worse than lets say Nvidia's nforce chip series?

SiS doesn't compete with Nvidia on the high end gaming cards.

SiS is only for the lower-end/budget stuff. They'll get much more competition from Via.

and I'm pretty sure Via is doing much better.

and pc_boy, Nvidia makes chipsets, not just graphics cards.
