Computex Taipei 2009: Since VIA has dropped away from the desktop chipset market, you would think this company would be going under. After all, their big push in the late 90's and early 2k was their chipsets for AMD and Intel products. However, times have changed and VIA no longer has any desktop chipsets for their competitors, rather focusing on their mobile and miniature PC market with chipsets for their own CPU's as well as graphics support through S3.
