Taiwanese chipset company SiS has licensed a whole raft of x86 technology from Rise, to help it grow its integrated solutions business. SiS, like Via, is a competitor to Intel in the chipset business. The licence deal means Rise is in a better state to continue developing technology, while it gives SiS more ammunition to better fight its chipset corner. Yesterday, we reported that Rise had not given up the ghost on its x86 family, but that it needed an injection of cash to keep it moving. SiS has its own fabrication plant, and also has a cross-licensing deal with Intel for the chip giant's P6 technology. No financial details of the deal between SiS and Rise were disclosed. ® Related Stories Rise not shining in chip desperation derby
