X-bit Labs reports VIA is expected to release new dual-core and quad-core processors this month. Additionally, it's also revealed that the company has no plans to enter the smartphone market.
Via Technologies, once the world's largest supplier of core-logic sets, said that it expected its partners to introduce solutions based on its dual-core and quad-core already in May, 2011. In spite of the fact that the company has been on the market of low-power applications, it does not have immediate intentions to enter the market of smartphones.
"There will be multiple dual-core and quad-core platforms for Computex Taipei 2011 exhibition in Taiwan at the end of this month. Because Via invented the Mini-ITX and the Pico-ITX form-factors, we know how to create alternative motherboard designs for the OEMs. At Computex, we will show low-power, multi-core solutions in the traditional low-end PC and traditional laptops," said Richard Brown, vice president of CPU platform sales and marketing at Via Technologies, in an interview with Bright Side of News web-site.
