M1695 redefines power, performance, and flexibility for AMD Athlon 64 Chipset
ULi Electronics Inc. (ULi) unveils M1695 north bridge- the latest low power and high performance
HyperTransport PCI Express tunnel chipset for all the Athlon 64 based processors including Socket 754,
940 and 939 CPUs. ULi is at the forefront of delivering yet another world's first and high performance M1695
chipset solution which supports TGi :(Triple Graphics Interface) simultaneous PCI Express x16, AGP 8X,
PCI graphics interfaces.
ULi's M1695 is designed to support extensive range of applications including the mainstream desktop and
mobile PCs, high performance workstation, and high reliability servers.
M1695's innovative HyperTransport tunnel architecture integrates non-blocking symmetrical
HyperTransport? 2.0 links which enables motherboard manufacturers and system integrators to pair up
M1695 with other high performance HyperTransport-based chipsets and bridge devices either natively or via
the HTX? connector. When coupled with ULi's M1567 south bridge, the combination offers motherboard
manufacturers the unprecedented capability to support PCI Express x16, AGP 8X, PCI graphics cards
simultaneously on the same mainboard. Such capability makes it possible to create a fully surrounding
virtual reality environment using multiple high resolution displays driven by the three graphics tecnologies
residing in the same computer system.
With both the upstream and the downstream HyperTransport links each running at 4 GT/sec and beyond,
optimum performance are ensured between M1695 and the connecting CPU as well as with other
M1695 features a bi-directional PCI Express x16 link (4 GBytes/sec peak bandwidth per direction) that is
configurable as two x8 links to sustain the ever demanding 3D graphics requirement for high resolution.
M1695 provides additional PCI Express links in either 2 x1 or 1 x4 (or x1 or x2) configuration to support
high-speed I/O devices such as network controllers and storage controllers.
