Intel, VIA settle chipset row

Will now produce parts under licence

Intel and VIA have settled their dispute over chipsets for the Pentium II family, it was confirmed today. Under the terms of the agreement, Intel will receive royalties from the Taiwanese company and will have rights to build its Apollo chipset. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. Earlier this year, Intel raised objections to VIA building PII chipsets without having licensed the technology. The company builds motherboards and chipsets for a number of other microprocessor firms including AMD and Cyrix. ®
