Auf der CeBIT2003 mussten sie ihre Board für den FSB800 noch mit FSB533+ anpreisen, es sah so aus, als würde Intel die erhoffte Lizenz - um deren Legitimation man sicherlich streiten kann - nie erteilen. Doch jetzt ist das Abkommen perfekt: SiS darf Chipsätze für den FSB800 fertigen.

Taipei, April 16, 2003 --- Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS), a leading supplier of core logic and graphics chipsets, announced today that they have extended their long term chipset license agreement with Intel Corporation. Following this extension, Silicon Integrated Systems has certain rights to produce chipsets that are compatible with Intel Pentium 4® microprocessors operating at an 800MHz system bus speed when those processors are formally released.

"Having a long term license to produce chipsets for Intel“s Pentium 4 microprocessor has been an important element of SiS's business," said Michael Chen, President and CEO of SiS. "We are pleased to have this agreement with Intel." Specific details of the agreement are confidential.
