ALi develops Mobile Pentium 4 chipset
ALi, who have a license for the Pentium 4 bus in addition to SiS, ATi and somehow VIA, have now announced their first plans for their own mobile chipset for the Pentium 4. This will be a certain further development of the already announced Pentium 4 chipset Aladidin-P4.
With the delivery this chip, the company has not yet started. This already offers support for memory according to the PC2700 and PC2100 standards and also has no problems with the ATA/133 protocol, which Matrox single-handedly announced. The chipset for the Mobile Pentium 4, which is to reach the market under the name CyberAladdin-P4, will be expanded to include an integrated graphics unit based on the Trident Cyberblade XP. Mass production of this chip is planned for the second quarter of next year. In the second half of next year, ALi would like to continue to equip its North Bridge with AGP 8x and the South Bridge with USB 2.0 support. The connection between the two chips should then be made using the HyperTransport bus. The HyperTransport technology is a high-speed bus with very low latency that was developed by AMD and that works with today's bus systems such as AGP, PCI, 1394, USB 2.0 and 1Gbit Ethernet as well as future bus systems such as AGP 8x, Infiniband, PCI -X, PCI 3.0 and 10Gbit Ethernet can communicate.
