Via also does GPU, as well.
I was hoping that Via do their version of APU aswell. (with the quad core)

It's difficult for VIA, because they haven't managed to put those four cores onto a single piece of silicon....unless they do a 3-chip MCM.

Definitely VIA's biggest problem is they are 2 generations behind in process nodes. This chip at 22nm = win. 40nm = a pretty average option
