3 Big data security analytics techniques

A visit by the CEO of Via, Wen-chi Chen, has failed to stem the flow of engineers from the old headquarters of Cyrix in Richardson, Texas. Insiders said that Chen arrived at the HQ yesterday, and addressed the troops for around 30 minutes. "He said that nothing is really going to change, even in the wake of [Tuesday's] mass exodus," our inside source said. By noon yesterday, four additional designers had resigned from Cyrix-Via, and the source added that nearly all contract layout staff at the site were released later in the afternoon. The M3/Jalapeno project was also officially cancelled yesterday, the source added. Now five design engineers and four design automation engineers remain in Richardson. There are six design engineers at the Arlington, Texas, site, but none of them are actively working on CPU designs, according to The Register's mole. However, silicon validation and the manufacturing and test teams remain largely intact, although key members of this group have left over the course of the last two weeks. Further organisational changes are likely to happen in around two weeks. Ironically, version 3.1 of the Joshua chip taped out yesterday morning en route to mass production. Yesterday, a representative from Via insisted that departures from the Richardson site would make no difference to the firm's plans for its CPUs. ® Related Stories Cyrix folk walk out after Via revelation
