VIA quitting third party chipset business


After spending years making, among other things, chipset for Intel and AMD-based platforms, VIA has announced that it is leaving that business and instead will focus on their own processors and associated platforms like the upcoming OpenBook.

Richard Brown, vice president of marketing for VIA, says that “one of the main reasons we originally moved into the x86 processor business was because we believed that ultimately the third party chipset market would disappear and we would need to have the capability to provide a complete platform.”
