Hmm... There's a lot of concern amung the Taiwanese chipset designers about
the Springdale and licensing.
The technology licensing issue in the chipset industry is surfacing again
with Intels introduction of its new Hyper-Threading Technology and the
800MHz FSB (front-side bus) standard for the upcoming Springdale platform. It
is believed that Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) will be most hard-hit among
the three chipset designers if all of them fail to obtain the license.
