ATI SB600 south bridge coming in May

ATI will introduce its SB600 south bridge chip in May, according to ATI's VP for Asia Pacific and China. The SB600 is expected to supplant the current SB450, which many motherboard manufacturers have shunned due to its poor I/O performance and feature set. Most of them have gone with ULI's M1575 and M1573 south bridge chips instead, but ULI plans to discontinue those chips in May, likely due to its recent acquisition by NVIDIA. The timely release of the SB600 should therefore be a crucial step for ATI, especially as supply of SB450 chips is expected to be insufficient. Let's hope ATI delivers, and that some SB600-powered motherboards appear in time for the release of AMD's Socket AM2 in June.
