According to an interview in Taiwanese wire Digitimes, the company has a joint venture with the government of Shanghai and is deploying X86 based microprocessors along with graphics chips.
Company rep Timothy Chen told the wire that the company will return to the PC market in the second half of next year. Via has a licence from Intel to design and produce X86 CPUs that lasts until 2018.
Its revenue streams right now include payments from chip dynamo Mediatek, USB 3.0 chips, and digital signage. It is also expected to make money from its GenieNetworks CDMA licensing business.
Despite those revenues, said Digitimes, Via turned in net losses in the third quarter. Chen said that there were delays to embedded system business and a number of one off engineering expenses.
