National Semiconductor has won a major customer for its Cyrix microprocessors, with leading PC maker Packard Bell planning to use the chips in a new family of low priced PCs.
Packard Bell is one of the world’s largest PC makers and it expects to offer Cyrix based PCs costing as little as $600. The deal, to be announced later this week, is an important boost for National, which has been struggling to find top PC manufacturers willing to use its Cyrix microprocessors.
