I listed many reason in my answer to the last time the question was raised (indeed not long time ago) mainly to be cut short by the fact that while most French speakers will know what is "une puce" (because it is a French patented invention and know as such to use it also on French bank cards and it is the term used for the SIM card of cellular phones) few will know what is "un/une chip" because to the majority "chips" are the fried and salted potatoe slices in plastic bags that other countries call French potatoes.

le chipset


Explanation:
As I've answered twice already. Various links from chipset manufacturers such as Intel and ATI, showed examples of this usage as did Tom's Hardware (the PC hardware information bible now available in French).

Here are some hits from Google using the term in this way:

  -> you may be right - strange kind of fun though!

agree  Carole Muller: Colin, I dont' disagree with chipset. I just think it's typical of the ENG to FR situation nowadays: what to select? the ENG used by pros or the new FR version that lang.exp try to spread?
