Chinese PC maker says new CPU was made with 'support of Intel'

Powerleader counters claims that chip is just a rebadge of old U.S. model

Shenzhen-based Powerleader Computer System unveiled its first-generation Powerstar P3-01105 CPU in early May.

Chinese computer manufacturer Powerleader Computer System is fending off allegations that its new central processing unit (CPU) is an old Intel chip in disguise, saying it was developed with support from the U.S. chipmaking giant.

The Shenzhen-based company unveiled its first-generation Powerstar P3-01105 CPU in early May. Chairman Li Ruijie said at the launch event that the chip, designed mainly for desktops in the commercial market, is based on Intel's x86 architecture under a collaboration with the U.S. company.
