Apparently unconcerned by Intel's vague threats of legal action over its use of Pentium 4 bus technology, VIA is ploughing on with its P4 chipset plans.

Having successfully launched the P4X266 last month - though not so successfully shipped it; the company has admitted to production shortages that aren't expected to be sorted until later this month - VIA is now readying the integrated P4M266 for volume production, as we've reported before. The P4M266 is now expected to ship in Q4.

At the same time, VIA will ship its P4X333, the DDR333 version of its first P4 chipset. The part's launch will allow VIA to offer the same level of memory support that rival products from Acer Labs and SIS provide. ®
