Intel To Buy RC410 Chipsets From ATi

Intel has placed orders for PCIe-enabled RC410 chips from ATI in order to maintain its supply of 915-based motherboards as the chip giant is reportedly to phase out its 865 and 915PL/GL chipsets in the fourth quarter and exit the entry-level chipset marke. Intel may purchase entry-level chipsets, mainly the 661FX from SiS for its 865-based entry-level motherboards. Intel may also include SiS’ 661GX chipsets for its motherboards. Intel may purchase a combined volume of 1.5 million chipsets from ATI and SiS per month, with shipments to start in October this year.
