Taiwan-based motherboard makers hold a pessimistic attitude toward recent news that several Japan-based semiconductor players plan to form alliance to develop a new CPU architecture and cut off their heavy dependence on x86 CPUs, due to uncertainties in terms of the total costs of R&D manpower and funding. The Japan-based semiconductor players include NEC, Renesas Technology, Hitachi, Toshiba, Fujitsu, Panasonic and Canon, while the alliance is supported by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry in Japan as well as the computer science department of Waseda University in Japan, according to Forbes citing a Nikkei Business News report. The project will have an initial capital of 3-4 billion yen (US$32-43 million). The new CPU is expected to be used for a wide range of consumer electronics by the end of fiscal 2012, the report added.
