Chipset contender Via has announced it has signed a deal with 3Com to bring 10/100Mbps Ethernet networking into Via's Apollo South Bridge.

The move is another step in Via's attempt to have a crack not just at Intel's desktop chipset market, but also to capture other business from the chip giant.

3Com is not a friend of Intel. From formerly being the top dog in the NIC market, 3Com found that market position eroded by offerings from Intel. Intel is now top dog in the NIC market.

Via and 3Com will combine their PC core logic and networking technologies, a company statement said. Products are set appear in the first quarter of next year.

The press release ends: "Note to reporters, editors and writers: VIA is spelled in ALL CAPS." Is it? ®
