JC heeft wat spul gepost over de recente ontwikkeling bij Cyrix. Check www.jc-news.com/pc/ :
I probably should try to clear up some of the confusion relating to NSM's major wimpout this past week. Basically, what's happening is that NSM decided to sell Cyrix, packaged with their Portland Fab (which had been making Cyrix's chips). A sale hasn't been made, though there are, it seems, a few hopefuls. Most people seem to think that IBM is the biggest prospect -- they kinda should be in the x86 market, it seems to suit them. I heard one fellow pushing for Samsung, I guess that's a possibility. Anyway, just to get some stuff straight: Cyrix is still working (even though certain key people to NSM have been pulled, that's only natural in this circumstance), there's even a reasonable chance of continued ramping. If there is a sale, they'll still exist. There may be a hit, time-wise, to their production schedule, but it likely wouldn't be severe since their main x86 fab is being sold with them. That's all I have to say about that.
