The latest from Intel vs. VIA
Bloomberg is reporting that VIA may have chalked up a win in its ongoing patent infringement battles with Intel.
Taipei, Nov. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Intel Corp., the world's biggest maker of chipsets, said a recent U.S. court ruling in favor of rival Via Technologies Inc. is a partial victory and doesn't mark the end of the legal dispute between the two.
Last week, the U.S. District Court in San Jose threw out one of three patent infringement suits filed by Intel against Via, Taiwan's No. 1 maker of chipsets. The dispute centers around allegations Via used intellectual property used in Intel's Pentium 3 processor in a chipset the Taiwanese company designed to support a processor from Advanced Micro Devices Inc.
A separate Pentium 4 lawsuit is still pending.
