At about that time, Via had fought and then settled its first legal battle with Intel, over the allegedly illegal manufacture of Pentium III chipsets and Xcompatile microprocessors it obtained from Cyrix Corp. Customize The Tech Report Socket based Pentium 4 processors. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing To date, Intel has not granted Via a license to use the Pentium 4 bus that Via reverse-engineered to create the P4X series of chipsets.

VIA P4X266 PE11-L – motherboard – ATX – Socket 478 – P4X266
However, Via apparently still lacks a license to use the Pentium 4 microprocessor bus technology jealously guarded by Intel and included in the P4X Shuttle Computer Group Inc. If the ten-year license included future bus technology, and if that technology legally shifted to the S3 Graphics Inc.
Given the history between the two companies, however, an Intel lawsuit against Via would be unsurprising.
VIA Apollo P4X Press Release
In releasing these boards, Shuttle has gone where Asus fears to tread. Shuttle claims to have worked closely with VIA in developing this product. However, S3 Graphics Inc. According apolpo Via executives last week at Comdex, the chipset simply contains an enhanced memory controller, similar to the one used on the KTA, a double-data-rate chipset for the AMD Athlon platform.

In DecemberIntel and S3 entered into a ten-year patent agreement in Decembertrading the Exponential processor patents and other intellectual property to Intel for access to the Pentium II bus for use in future chipsets. Post l4x266 Comment Comment. The chipset itself performed well in ExtremeTech testingedging out the Intel —which uses higher-performance, more expensive Directr Rambus memory—in some tests.
The two companies renegotiated the agreement to satisfy the Taiwan government, although the respective stakes of S3 and Via in the joint venture was never fully disclosed.

The specs The AV40 series comes in two flavors: Voltage, fan status, and temperature monitoring.
Otherwise, the board’s spec is standard fare for an enthusiast mobo. Intel, seeing an opportunity, jumped in. I haven’t regretted it. My review of the board was positive, and soon afterward, I put an AK31 in my own personal system.
The AK31 was a watershed for Shuttle, whose products haven’t always endeared themselves to serious PC hobbyists. Can Shuttle follow up this success with another good enthusiast’s mobo?
