Jon Peddie Research released its quarterly report on the state of the GPU market today and optimistically forecasts a strong third quarter. The second quarter bucked seasonal trends; sales were up a massive 31.29 percent. That's in contrast to what we typically see in Q2; over the past eight years sales have usually fallen slightly from Q1-Q2, not shot up. Of the big three, Intel and AMD saw their GPU shipments and market shares increase, while NVIDIA's own market share took a 0.5 percent hit. Shipments at all three companies grew by 35.2 percent, 41.5 percent, and 23.6 percent respectively. Every... Read more...
Several financial analysts have weighed in on AMD's Q2 performance since the company announced results, and their collective opinion has been anything but good. In the wake of its earnings call, AMD has been taken to task over its failure to provide an answer to Atom (or a netbook processor in general), weak margins, and strong competition from Nehalem and the mainstream parts based on it that will launch in the second half of this year. If you want the full tally, have a look at ZDNet's report here. A number of these criticisms are well-founded, but dinging the company for its supposed failure... Read more...
Once touted as the manufacturer who put Linux-powered PCs on the shelves at Wal-Mart, troubled Everex has closed its US operations and headed for home. While it operated in the US, Everex was noted both for its ultra-low-cost systems and the fact that its computers used Linux rather than Windows. Everex also teamed up with web OS/applications provider Zonbu and offered Zonbu-based solutions in both a desktop and a laptop form factor. Everex was apparently unable to leverage the cautious praise it earned for some of these efforts into an effective profit engine. It's unclear if Everex's departure... Read more...
We can remember a time when VIA was rarely mentioned when talking CPUs, but now the company has made a ferocious comeback that has its processors slipping into netbooks, small form factor PCs and now, Fujitsu thin clients.Starting today, Fujitsu will utilize VIA's Eden ULV (Ultra Low Voltage) processor for its next generation FUTRO thin client series. Said chip will provide 500MHz of power with a low TDP of just one watt. The first FUTRO to featur ethe chip will be the S100, a completely fanless and silent thin client and virtual workplace solution.VIA's angle is that more and more companies are... Read more...
For the most part, "netbook" and "HD capable" really don't go together. Particularly if it's a netbook equipped with the all too familiar Atom N270 + GMA 950 combo. But things look a bit different if the machine is loaded with innards from a different manufacturer...namely, VIA. The unheard of Shenzhen Zaiben Technology Company, likely a low-rate Chinese OEM, has just introduced a new "clamshell PC" dubbed the F88, which looks to be one of the most multimedia-friendly netbooks to date. Boasting a 10" display with a common 1024x600 resolution, the machine also features a 1.6GHz VIA Nano processor,... Read more...
Wow Shuttle, branching out, are we? The company made famous for delivering rectangular barebones kits that ruled the SFF roost for years is now spreading its wings and delving into more low-power type rigs. Don't believe us? Have a look at the latest release from VIA, which proves that Shuttle is accepting VIA's Nano CPU in its newest small form factor PC. The fanless Shuttle XS29F is smaller and less flashy than most of Shuttle's wares, and the company is targetting home users and small business users who don't really need loads of horsepower to handle basic daily work tasks such as email, Word...

With Intel getting hit with that massive $1.45 billion fine this past week, it's got the whole technology industry thinking about the ins and outs of antitrust. Granted, we fully expect that Dell has had this here deal cooking for some time now, but the timing of this introduction is almost poetic. For the longest while, Dell has offered processors from Intel, a few from AMD and... well, that's about it. Starting next, all that changes. According to a new report from The New York Times, the Texas-based PC maker is gearing up to unveil a new, unique system that uses a dozen full servers running... Read more...
Not sure if you've noticed, but VIA is definitely getting deep into the media server game. Shortly after launching its NSD7200 2-bay Windows Home Server device, the company has today introduced a new motherboard aimed specifically at these very servers. The VB8002 Mini-ITX board brings the performance efficiency of the VIA Nano processor to consumer-focused server products, and to date, it's been Intel's Atom stuck within most of these devices.Not surprisingly, it looks like VIA is eager to steal away some of that market share, and this is a perfect area to do it. Media servers don't require huge... Read more...
Frankly, many technology pundits have already brushed WiMAX aside as a failed attempt to become the next high-speed mobile data protocol. With LTE gaining massive support, it's hard to envision WiMAX -- a technology that is already deployed in many areas of the world -- hanging around for too long. If VIA has anything to say about it, however, it'll do just fine.Today, VIA Technologies -- the company responsible for low-power processors in UMPCs, embedded devices and select netbooks -- has announced its participation in the Tatung University WiMAX Application Lab project that brings together industry...

While many in the chip making and consumer electronics business are contracting, VIA's expanding. Today, the company has just announced its entry into the design manufacturing service business, which will enable it to provide flexible system hardware solutions, starting with the NSD7200 home storage and media server pictured below.Now, VIA's definitely had time to dabble in small form factor, embedded and IPC markets, so branching out into this market shouldn't take you completely by surprise. VIA's goal here is to combine energy-efficient processor platforms and high quality chassis designs with... Read more...
While most of the world keys in on Intel, AMD and ARM, VIA is quietly slinking around the corner waiting to steal away some of that precious market share. After debuting a potent solution for 1080p-capable netbooks and bringing its IVP-7500 into motor vehicles, the company is now flaunting its P710-HD module, which does its best to turn the VIA EPIA-P710 Pico-ITXe board into a multimedia playback powerhouse.Indeed, the P710-HD is the first expansion module ever created for EPIA-P710, boasting the 4300E embedded graphics processor from S3 Graphics. Said device is also the first Pico-I/O module for... Read more...
You have to wonder -- how many more new chip releases does VIA have queued up for this month? After announcing its VX855 Media System Processor and its Surfboard C855 reference design, the company famous for its low-power, low-cost processors is delivering another new one. Unlike those other examples, though, this one's aimed straight at your automobile.The IVP-7500 board is the first in a forthcoming line of dedicated x86 in-vehicle platforms for developers of car PCs and intelligent transportation devices, and while carputers aren't anything new, VIA is hoping to expand the niche by adding new...
