Intel to drop SiS chipset royalty charges?

Posted on Tuesday, Dec 06 2005 @ 15:25 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
In early 2006 Intel will stop collecting royalty fees on chipsets from SiS that support its entry-level processors, DigiTimes reports.

The Commercial Times, a Chinese newspaper, claims Intel will drop the $1.50 royalty charge to help maintain its dominance in the entry-level PC chipset market through third-party players.
SiS said that it had no knowledge of the report and declined to comment. According to Mercury Research, shipments of PC chipsets based on the Intel platform are estimated to slide to 39 million units in the fourth quarter of this year, while the non-Intel chipset segment grew 37% sequentially to 34.7 million units.
