Default Sizing up the NVIDIA-VIA acquisition rumors

For VIA, acquisition from one company or another may be inevitable. Eight years ago, VIA was a rising star in the IT world, with a strong presence in both AMD and Intel chipsets, and the potential to seriously challenge Intel as a chipset provider. A critical series of missteps substantially damaged the company's market share in both its P4 and its AMD segments, with Intel absorbing most of the former and NVIDIA seizing most of the latter. VIA eventually ceased building solutions for either company; today the company's chipsets are reserved for its own C3/C7/CN (Isaiah) products.
