Tue Dec 03 2002, 11:40
ACER LABS INTERNATIONAL appears to have woken up from its long chipset slumber, and said its M1681 chipset will be built into Benq's Digital Hub Joybook 3000 and Joybook 8000.

This chipset supports the 533MHz front side bus, DDR 400 memory, and AGP8X, the firm said.

ALI, like SIS and ATI, has a Pentium 4 licence.

The chipset also uses the M1563 Hypertransport data link bus, and claims that gives a transfer rate of 1.6GB/s. The chipset also supports USB 2.0, six PCI masters, 10/100 Ethernet, AC97, flash media interfaces, and two Ultra 100/133 IDE master control channels.

And ALI also appears to have won a major design win for the Toshiba Portege 3500 and 2000 Tablet PCs, Digitimes reports.

These Tosh products will use the Cyber Aladdin-T integrated chipset, a combo of the Aladdin Pro 5 north bridge and Trident's Cyberblade graphics core.
