Intel and NVIDIA sign cross-license agreement

— 9:27 AM on November 19, 2004

NVIDIA will be able to make nForce chipsets for Intel processors under the terms of an agreement just announced:

SANTA CLARA, CA-NOVEMBER 19, 2004-NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) and Intel Corporation today announced that the companies have signed a broad, multi-year patent cross-license agreement spanning multiple product lines and product generations. Additionally, the companies signed a multi-year chipset agreement for NVIDIA to license Intel’s front-side bus technology. This will enable NVIDIA to deliver the NVIDIA nForce platform technology on Intel-based systems.
The quick statement released by both companies doesn't provide much more detail about the terms than that, but I expect it will give Intel more freedom to maneuver in the graphics arena in addition to giving NVIDIA rights to Intel's front-side bus tech.
