Intel heeft de rechtszaak, die het een aantal dagen geleden heeft aangespannen tegen chipset fabrikant VIA, gedropt. Was een 'vergissing':
The Intel spokesman said the law suit was being held in abeyance as a contingency, but should not have been filed last week. He declined to say whether the suit might be refiled in the future.
Santa Clara, Calif.-based Intel late last year licensed its Slot 1 technology to Via for chip-set products, though details of the agreement have been kept confidential. Sources said they believed when Via announced plans to make a Slot 1 chip set supporting PC133 synchronous SDRAM, Intel raised objections. Intel itself shuns any support for PC133 memory, reportedly to avoid creating any interim competitor to Direct Rambus DRAM chips, which is supported by its own Camino chip-set solution.
