SiS gets Pentium M license
The press release isn't up on SiS's web site yet, but an email just hit my inbox announcing that SiS has obtained a license to build chipsets for Intel's Pentium M processor:
Taipei, Sep. 8th, 2003 --- Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS), a leading supplier of core logic products, today announced the company has reached agreement with Intel Corporation for a Pentium® M microprocessor license. This gives SiS the necessary rights to build chipsets based on Intel ® Pentium® M microprocessors. Additional details of the agreement were not disclosed.
"The cutting-edge technology of Pentium® M microprocessor will be the main stream of the market," said Michael Chen, President and CEO of SiS. "We are pleased to extend our long-term relationship with Intel to continuously provide new products with leading technology"
SiS will likely build notebook chipsets for the processor, but I wouldn't rule out products targeted at desktop markets.
