ULi M1573 south bridge spotted
OCWorkbench has the goods
on ULi's M1573 south bridge, which boasts an impressive array of features and compatibility with ATI's latest north bridge chips. The M1573 packs a Fast Ethernet MAC, four-port SATA RAID with support for RAID 0+1 and Native Command Queuing, Azalia-compliant high definition audio, and an unspecified number of PCI Express lanes. With the Radeon Xpress 200 chipset notably lacking NCQ and high definition audio, the M1573 could be a popular substitute for ATI's own south bridge chips in enthusiast-oriented Radeon Xpress boards.
