SiS just sent over a press release detailing their upcoming 964 south bridge chip, which includes support for two Serial ATA devices. The new south bridge chip will also include RAID functionality and a laundry list of other features. The press release also claims that the new south bridge will support "Dolby digital 5.1 channel" audio, which makes me wonder if it might be capable of encoding Dolby digital streams like NVIDIA's nForce2 APU.
Mass production of the 964 south bridge won't begin until Q3 2003, which means that SiS will probably be the last major chipset manufacturer to join the south bridge Serial ATA party. The chip should, however, be paired with north bridge chips for both Intel and AMD processors, giving both sets of fanboys a chance to get in on the action.
