Well the chipset war is flaming up again! The Taiwanese manufacturers have
to cut prices
since Intel did and will do again in Sept!
The industry was led into expecting a temporary reprieve from the months-long
price war by the announcement from VIA Technologies of price rises on its P4X266,
P4M266 and P4X266E chipsets. However, when Intel lowered the prices of its 845D,
845GL and 845E chipsets as scheduled, Taiwans chipset designers decided
that they had to adjust their prices to keep a competitive gap between themselves
and the chip maker.
