Single-chip ULi Athlon 64 chipset to come in July

— 2:28 AM on June 8, 2005

DigiTimes is reporting that mass production of ULi's upcoming M1697 Athlon 64 chipset will begin next month. Like NVIDIA's nForce4 family, the M1697 is a single-chip solution. The chipset will support dual-core Athlon 64 processors, 3Gbps "Serial ATA II" transfer rates, 20 lanes of PCI Express, High Definition Audio, and RAID 0, 1, 0+1, and 5 arrays. According to ULi, the chipset can provide a full sixteen lanes of PCI Express to a single x16 slot or split those lanes evenly between a pair of x16 slots. However, it's unclear whether the M1697 will be certified to work with ATI's CrossFire or NVIDIA's SLI technologies.
