Taiwan’s Silicon Integrated Systems is considering becoming a fab for inexpensive Intel-compatible chips, through a licensing deal with Rise Technologies.
SiS makes chipsets, graphic chips, and other computer components.
SiS said the deal targets production of “integrated processors” that combine a microprocessor core with other elements, such as a graphics processor.
Rise released its first chips last year, but has sold few of them, according to analysts.
