Press Release: Taipei - Industry leaders Silicon Integrated Systems Corp., Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., ASUSTeK Computer Inc. and Rambus Inc. announce the cooperative development of the next-generation RDRAM-based chipset, the SiSR659, which is targeted at the performance computing and multimedia gaming markets.

[URL=http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=7944]The Inq[/URL] has also posted some information on the announcement, the companies involved are claiming the R659 will give Chipzilla's DDR400 chips a run for its money, though that remains to be seen, it's Rambus, you know :D.

Now, going chipset crazy, [URL=http://www.hardocp.com/image.html?image=MTA0NjA3NDc3N3hmTWc4TlQzcnFfMV8xX2wuZ2lm]HardOCP[/URL] got some info on a dual Socket A board equipped with the "nForceFX chipset"... you heard that right, apparently NVIDIA has got that in the works without us knowing, heh.
