The VSA/VSA2 enables more true VGA compatibility and enables the audio,
among a few other things. For any device where there is a NSC/AMD
companion chip (CS5530/CS5536), as far as my understanging goes,
includes VSA, the SC1200 and a few of those other integrated devices
also have the VSA.
The difference between what AMD/NSC call the GX1 and GX2 is simply the
companion chip - CS5530=GX1 platform, CS5536=GX2
