VIA counters allegations by Intel
Controversy continues to swirl around VIA's P4X266. Here is VIA's official response to what it perceives as FUD from Intel.
"Intel has made repeated claims both in the media and in discussions with customers that we are not licensed to sell products that are compatible with the Intel Pentium 4. We disagree with these and other scare tactics that Intel is employing in the PC industry for marketing purposes. Intel should deal with facts openly and communicate through official press releases rather than threatening customers and sowing seeds of doubt in the marketplace," commented Richard Brown, Director of Marketing, VIA Technologies, Inc.
