SiS is very hot at the moment and seems to be very much on the ball in terms of producing chipsets. It all started about a year ago with the release of the SiS 735 chipset for the Athlon and has simple grown from there. That chipset was the fastest thing when it came out, totally dominating the competition however SiS's success was not limited to AMD platforms alone, their 645/645DX also was very powerful and popular.
When SIS recently announced the Xabre line of Graphics chipsets the hardware community greated the news with some skepticism. Sure on paper the Xabre was powerful in appearance, but how would it really perform in silicon? As it was ultimately destined to be a low cost solution many wondered if it would really be able to compete with nVidia's GeForce4 MX or ATi's Radeon 7500 GPU's.
