VIA complains about anti-competitive practices by Intel

Posted on Monday, November 16 2009 @ 18:58:05 CET by

Now that Intel has paid $1.25 billion to get AMD of their back, VIA complains the anti-competitive environment is still there and still needs to be looked at very carefully.
Other companies, VIA included, contend that Intel has targeted them, too. "We congratulate AMD; it's been a tough battle for them," says VIA's international marketing vice-president, Richard Brown. But, he adds: "We do think the anti-competitive environment is still here and still needs to be looked at very carefully."

VIA could use all the help it can get. At the beginning of the decade, VIA was Taiwan's most successful chip-design company, with $1 billion in revenue and had over 40% of the global market for chipsets. That not only put VIA ahead of Intel, it made it the global leader. Eager to capitalize on the momentum, VIA President and CEO Wen-chi Chen had ambitious plans to challenge the U.S. company in its core business. "We would like to be No. 1 in microprocessors, too," he told BusinessWeek in a 2001 interview, adding: "That will be a while, a long while."
