2. Supported Chips


(Max Ram: 1Mb, Max Dclk: 68MHz@5V)


This chip is basically identical to the 65530. It has the same ID and is identified as a 65530 when probed. See ct65530 for details.


This is a very similar chip to the 65520. However it additionally has the ability for mixed 5V and 3.3V operation and linear addressing of the video memory. (Max Ram: 1Mb, Max Dclk: 56MHz@3.3V, 68MHz@5V)


This is the first chip of the ct655xx series to support fully programmable clocks. Otherwise it has the the same properties as the 65530.


This is the first version of the of the ct655xx that was capable of supporting Hi-Color and True-Color. It also includes a fully programmable dot clock and supports all types of flat panels. (Max Ram: 1Mb, Max Dclk: 56MHz@3.3V, 68MHz@5V)


The chip is very similar to the 65540, with the addition of H/W cursor, pop-menu acceleration, BitBLT and support of PCI Buses. PCI version also allow all the BitBLT and H/W cursor registers to be memory mapped 2Mb above the Base Address. (Max Ram: 1Mb, Max Dclk: 56MHz@3.3V,68MHz@5V)


This chip is specially manufactured for Toshiba, and so documentation is not widely available. It is believed that this is really just a 65545 with a higher maximum dot-clock of 80MHz. (Max Ram: 1Mb?, Max Dclk: 80MHz?)


This chip is similar to the 65545, but it also includes XRAM support and supports the higher dot clocks of the 65546. (Max Ram: 1Mb, Max Dclk: 80MHz)


This chip started a completely new architecture to previous ct655xx chips. It includes many new features, including improved BitBLT support (24bpp color expansion, wider maximum pitch, etc), Multimedia unit (video capture, zoom video port, etc) and 24bpp uncompressed true color (i.e 32bpp mode). Also memory mapped I/O is possible on all bus configurations. (Max Ram: 2Mb, Max Dclk: 80MHz@3.3V,100MHz@5V)

( Note: At least one non-PCI bus system with a ct65550 requires the "-no_bios" option for the SuperProbe to correctly detect the chipset with the factory default BIOS settings. The XF86_SVGA server can correctly detect the chip in the same situation. )


This chip is similar to the 65550 but has a 64bit memory bus as opposed to a 32bit bus. It also has higher limits on the maximum memory and pixel clocks (Max Ram: 4Mb, Max Dclk: 100MHz@3.3V)


Similar to the 65554 but has yet higher maximum memory and pixel clocks. It also includes a new DSTN dithering scheme that improves the performance of DSTN screens. (Max Ram: 4Mb, Max Dclk: 110MHz@3.3V)


Similar to the 65555 but also incorporates "PanelLink" drivers. This serial link allows an LCD screens to be located up to 100m from the video processor. Expect to see this chip soon in LCD desktop machines (Max Ram: 4Mb, Max Dclk: 110MHz@3.3V)


Similar to the 65555 but incorporates 2Mbytes of SGRAM on chip. It is the first Chips and Technologies chipset where all of the registers are accessible through MMIO, rather than just the BitBlt registers. (Max Ram: 2Mb Only, Max Dclk: 220MHz@3.3V)


This chip, also known as the WinGine, is used in video cards for desktop systems. It often uses external DAC's and programmable clock chips to supply additional functionally. None of these are currently supported within the driver itself, so many cards will only have limited support. Linear addressing is not supported for this card in the driver. (Max Ram: 2Mb, Max Dclk: 80MHz)


This is a more advanced version of the WinGine chip, with specification very similar to the 6554x series of chips. However there are many difference at a register level. A similar level of acceleration to the 65545 is included for this driver. (Max Ram: 2Mb, Max Dclk: 80MHz)
