VIA merges chipset and CPU division

Posted on Friday, January 04 2008 @ 08:27:21 CET by

DigiTimes reports VIA has silently merged its chipset division under that of CPUs in the last quarter of 2007.

Chinese newspapers claim VIA is going to focus more on shipping its own-brand CPU platforms and that chipsets for AMD and Intel platforms will be slowly phased out:
The company will still provide support from AMD platforms while continuing the support older Intel products that are not impacted by patent issues, the paper noted.

Due to client demand, the company has not completely given up on negotiating with Intel for a patent contract, however, even if the company does receive a license, the current competitiveness in the chipset market means that the company would be unlikely to see a great benefit to its performance. As a result the company is searching for other profitable markets, particularly in the CPU, communications and multimedia sectors, added the paper.
