Short Take: Via releases advanced chipset

Taiwan's Via Technologies has released chipsets that will allow computer makers to combine Intel or Advanced Micro Devices processors with Double Data Rate DRAM (DDR DRAM), a high-speed form of PC memory. Chipsets essentially serve as a crucial bridge between memory, the processor and the rest of the computer. And DDR DRAM is rapidly emerging as the performance memory of choice among computer makers. Via, which is challenging Intel for leadership in the chipset market, will sell the chipsets for $40 each in bulk.
