Taiwanese chip firm Via said today that its net sales for last month amounted to $84 million (NT$ 2.57 billion). The firm claimed that is an increase, compared to March 1999, of 348 per cent, while net sales grew 218 per cent for its first three months, compared to the same quarter last year. Total net sales for Q1 2000 amounted to $184 million, while Q1 1999 saw its chipset sales deliver just over $58 million. Intel considers Via to be a potent threat to its own chipset business, with senior Intel VP Pat Gelsinger telling The Register last year that his company was "paranoid" about the firm. Via and Intel are currently engaged in litigation around the world over alleged patent infringements. So while Via continues to increase its sales, lawyers for the firm are likely to be rubbing their hands in glee. The bills are sure to be paid by both sides, and lawyers rarely lose. ®
