Intel sleept concurrent VIA voor de rechtbank, volgens dit nieuwsbericht van The Register:
Details of Intel's action against Via are scanty. Today is a bank holiday in the UK and public relations staff were not available for comment. The Taiwanese chip firm has crossed swords with Intel before. And, over the course of this year, Via has caused considerable headaches for Intel because of its support for the PC-133 and later PC-266 memory standards, which the chip giant has re-iterated it will never support, despite problems with Rambus. In early April, Via and S3 patched together a strategic agreement to cooperate on graphics chipsets. This also antagonised Intel, which viewed S3 as its close partner.
