VIA...I'm done with your crap.

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on August 07, 2005 03:34 AM
I've effectively given up on the Unichrome video on my EPIA...I turned my EPIA into an open-source based firewall/router. Its a waste of time screwing around with a product that offers piss-poor video performance to begin with.

The only useful thing VIA has made is the encryption ability on their C3 and upcoming C7 CPUs (on EPIA, Mini-ITX platform). Other than that, I'm not gonna bother with another VIA product...Unless I'm building a VPN firewall or some low power home fileserver. (Anything that doesn't require onboard video developed by VIA).
