ULi M1573 South Bridge with HD Azalia Audio and NCQ
SATA Preview 1/2
ULi M1573 Reference Board
Recently, ULi has introduced the M1573 Southbridge Chip, intended to be used with AMD64 PCI-E Motherboards. As you guys know, the ATi RS480 chipset has been making waves recently but the SB400 south bridge seems to lack a bit of features. With ULi M1573 PCI-E based South Bridge, the RS480 marries the power of the south bridge to deliver first class performance and functionalities comparable to the top notch PCI-E chipsets out there.
The M1573 integrates a High
Definition (HD) Audio/AC'97 Host Controller, 2-channel dedicated
Ultra-66/100/133 IDE Master controller, SATA Host Controller (4 SATA ports
that can support SATA RAID 0,1,0+1) supporting Native Command Queue,
USB 2.0/1.1 Host controllers, IO APIC controller, as well as 1/10/100 Mb/s Fast
Ethernet MAC layer and PCI Express interface.
As seen from this reference
Motherboard, the ULi 1573 is paired with an ATi RS480 PCI-E Northbridge, giving
PCI-Express with excellent onboard features.
