This is all fact and no rumour. VIA made offers to approximately 100 Cyrix employees to stay to work for VIA/Cyrix. VIA offered ridiculous amounts of bonus money to keep the employees from leaving including all the profits from Gobi split among the remaining employees. The Gobi project shouldn't be much farther than when the layoffs occured. Gobi is having lots of probelms such as problems with getting the 256K integrated L2 cache to work. Performance wise, a pretty recent version of Gobi performs on par with the MII clock for clock but that should improve if they get the L2 cache working. FPU performance is faster than the K6-2 but slower than a Celeron. With 3DNow!, Gobi is comparable to a Celeron Mhz for Mhz. However, Gobi will use the dreaded PR system so performance might fall way behing competitors' offerings. At the time of the Cyrix layoffs, there were some 333 MHz Gobis available and a handful running on a 133 MHz frontside bus. Mojave seems like a dead project since almost nobody is working on that project.
