VIA based P4 boards from MSI and ASUS next quarter

By on
With VIA finally being able to market their Pentium 4 chipsets, most larger manufacturers are expected to be jumping on the bandwagon, ASUS and MSI seem to be the first to have boards in the works according to Digitimes.
Unlike the videocard market, usually mobo makers have no problem distributing products based on competing chipsets from Intel, SiS, VIA, ALi, or any other.

It's going to be an interesting situation, let's remember VIA once developed a P4 chipset that performed better than those from Intel & SiS at the time, unfortunately they couldn't market the chip... SiS should be worried.
