    It would be great if they did but I have a feeling that they would hold off if they did till they had more time for a revised roadmap/product line and marketing strategy. IDK, it be great if they did.

    For all we know, can't they buy this technology and just incorporate it into a integrated chip and forego the retail sector all together? That would be pretty bad for PVR enthusiasts.

    VIA has already announced that it intends to enter the desktop graphics market.

    By the way I can't see anything on the cebit press broadcasting pages about via for the 14th......

    Looks to me like with all the graphics makers entering chipsets , it just makes sense for all the chipset makers to enter graphics . I think things are going to get very interesting very soon .

    STMicro tech.The S3 division will continue target mobile grahpics chip...
