Oh, what the heck. The folks at Custom PC talked to Via marketing honcho Richard Brown recently, and he confirmed to them that Via doesn't have a future in making chipsets for Intel and AMD processors. That much, I think, was obvious from Via's utter lack of new chipset products for Intel and AMD processors for quite some time now, but somehow this information became a widely reported news item today.
Yes, we continue to have no bananas.
Instead, Via is focusing on its Nano processor and on developing platforms for it. More or less as expected.
Oh, and thanks to Pikaporeon for the tip.
