Silicon Integrated System (SiS) unveiled its first reference board based on the mini-DTX form factor at Computex Taipei 2007. The board is designed for the home server market and is named Churchill.
Churchill was successfully co-developed by SiS, AMD, and Gigabyte Technology. It implements SiS's high-performance SiS761GX/SiS966 chipsets and AMD socket AM2 CPU to power the system, noted SiS.
The SiS761GX northbridge chipset supports AMD Athlon 64, 64FX, Opteron and Sempron CPUs. The chipset is SiS's latest product for embedded systems and is designed to reduce power consumption of the system. Additionally, the chipset has an integrated Mirage graphics engine to optimize the multimedia performance of the system, according to the company.
Churchill is designed to be light-weight, compact and flexible with everything packed into a 10 (H) × 7 (W) × 10-inch (D) chassis, added the company.
