Intel sues VIA over chipset upset
Author: JT Smith
From TheRegister: "The P4 chipset phoney war is over: let the fighting begin. In the red corner is Intel, which yesterday filed suit against VIA in the Delaware courts. The chip giant alleges that its Taiwanese rival and customer has infringed five P4 patents with its P4X266 and P4M266 chipsets. It wants damages and is seeking an injunction, presumably to halt manufacture."
