Both terms lack definition on platforms without a hardware synth, so both would be misnomers and no chipmusic at all would exist on platforms like Amiga and various modern consoles, standard PCs, etc, where the audio hardware just plays samples and any synth sounds you may hear is either emulated in software or emulated manually by the composers (both by using short sampled waveforms and applying various effects). It has come to include the latter, and not just music using the hardware synth chip.
