IDT is planning to create a version of its Winchip2 using the 370 pin socket first developed by Intel, sources close to the company said last week.
Fellow chip makers Cyrix and Rise have already confirmed that they will create their chips in the 370 pin factor, too.
Like Cyrix, IDT will produce a "pin-for-pin" version of the chip, making things simpler for motherboard manufacturers.
This will leave AMD as the only chip manufacturer still using the Super Seven socket.
AMD insists it is still committed to the Super Seven Socket, except with the K7, due in July, which uses an Alpha Slot A design.
AMD is unable to produce a pin-for-pin copy of an Intel chip due to a past court settlement in which the company agreed never to make anything that could be described as an Intel chip clone.
