Who will get new Pentium 4 bus licenses?

— 12:33 PM on March 19, 2003

According to this story over at the Inquirer, both ALi and SiS will get licenses for Intel's upcoming 800MHz front side bus after Intel launches its new Pentium 4 platform. Though ATI recently licenses Intel's Pentium M bus, they've yet to acquire a license for Intel's upcoming desktop platform.

Since ALi and SiS apparently won't be granted licenses until after Intel launches its new Pentium 4 platform, there's still plenty of time for ATI to get its hands on a license. It still remains to be seen whether VIA will even try to obtain a license for Intel's new Pentium 4 bus or whether it will continue to make unlicensed chipsets.
