Via selling motherboards to spur P4 chip set sales

Author: JT Smith

EE Times: "Chip designer Via Technologies Inc. is moving into motherboard production
to boost sales of its flagship product, the P4x266, a Pentium 4 compatible chip set. The
decision, announced Monday, Oct. 15, surprised many familiar with the company, who
generally viewed it as a desperate gamble in the company's showdown with Intel Corp. over
licensing fees for the chip set."
