Very interesting Via seems to want a piece of the graphics market as well. I look for them to attempt their own version of a hybrid CPU/GPU on a single die eventually. I do not know how much headway they can make as they will be competing against the best in the business with Intel, Nvidia and AMD will soon have a version out.
VIA has had a small piece of the graphics market for a while now. The same way they got a piece of the CPU market, by buying a failing company.

Now this is getting interesting, If they can actually deliver on this.
There has been talk in the DCC world of products like this. Processors that have the capability to work in conjunction with the GPU to allow for integrated rendering capabilities. That was even the buzz, that a GPU could be made useless when rendering 3D files in Mental Ray, allowing the computer to do it all within the processor, RAM and on the Motherboard.
This seems like an offshoot of that type of structure. It has been said that with that capability, and addition of a WS card that rendering would be virtually instant. With that kind of power, I am sure HD content would be an easy process for this type of chipset.
I guess the question is now. Do we wait for this company to step up to the plate and deliver. Or do we wait until AMD/Intel swoop in and produce their own versions to call their own?
