    Chinese CPU maker Zhaoxin to launch a dGPU this year

    GPU could be based upon S3 Graphics technology like its current iGPUs are.

    This is interesting for the GPU implications, but also the geopolitical and IP ones. VIA and HTC are both Taiwanese companies, and if this winds up leading to a successful line of GPUs, that would more or less be enabling Communist China to enter a new market where they do not currently have a major offering. Thus, it would seem reasonable for the ROC government to take an interest both in Zhaoxin generally, and in VIA's use of their IP in it in particular.

    And then there's HTC's angle. They may have agreed to let VIA continue using the S3 IP, but does that apply to minority-ventures in which VIA has a stake? That seems considerably less likely.

    I'm not a journalist, but it would be interesting to read an article that goes slightly deeper into these questions.

    I was looking forward to China entering and eventually becoming competitive in the PC space, but with their very aggressive and dangerous political tactics, it's very likely they'll be locked out of world markets before they can compete with US companies.

    I don't believe anything the Chinese say, let alone CNN etc.
    And its about time all that IP stealing by China is put to
    some use. To create the worlds slowest dGPU ? BTW I dont
    think communism and technological advancement work well
    together. You watch in a few yrs China will come begging
    to the West for better chips.
