The sale of Digital's Alpha semiconductor manufacturing operations to Intel was completed on Monday.
The deal was done at the book value price of the factory - $625 million. The agreement includes continued development of the processor within Digital while Intel does the manufacturing.
Outstanding lawsuits between the two have been dropped. Under Federal Trade Commission requirements related to the deal, AMD and IBM will be licensed to manufacture the Alpha processor while Samsung has been given an architectural license to develop the chip technology for other uses, including embedded chips.
