    On 28nm, it may be cheap to produce, but its performance will be limited by TDP. And on top of it, it will gobble energy in comparison to current/upcoming 7nm and better GPUs.

    But it will make them independent. It will perform worse indeed, and those gpus are not for us, are for chinese market.

    Who wants an nvidia will still manage to buy it, but maybe most of the internal market will move on those.

    If the performance is comparible to their CPU's then it should be bloody awfull.

    If VIA is involved, they have, I believe, the entirety of S3's IP to play around with. (Although that is probably pretty meager.) I remember there were discrete S3 video cards being offered for sale in the U.S. around 2008 ~ 2010 or thereabouts. Pretty sure I recall Newegg selling them. I suppose they were in the Nvidia GT210/220-class.

    And, speaking of Intellectual Property, I'd advise Nvidia, AMD and Intel to pay very close attention, and keep the attorneys ready to launch.

    "The Chinese want to become independent of Western-based suppliers on the market by mid-2020."

    No offense intended to the Chinese, but I wouldn't mind seeing some domestic production of, say, consumer motherboards and graphic cards, being produced all around the World.

    It's not about the performance is about what they can record off your screen.... Have you ever been to China even the slums of China have a million cameras all down the streets...

    Sure.... this is exactly why they are building them... double or triple your tinfoil cap.

    Thats a start and would be good enough I'm sure for non-gaming office work or YouTube etc. China is going to have some super cheap PC's soon with a Zhaoxin CPU/GPU and a VIA chipset. VIA is a freaking Zombie that should be dead a few times over but yet they still find a way.
