HTC finally completes acquisition of S3 Graphics
11 months ago HTC launched the process of buying S3 Graphics, the graphics division of VIA Technologies , amounting to U.S. $ 300 million, to benefit from the large number of Patents held by s3 graphics Graphics.
This purchase had some ups and downs through which almost fails to materialize , but against all odds, the purchase of S3 Graphics by HTC finally realized.
This purchase is bad news for the graphics market, because according to inform us of Xtreview, HTC would not be interested in continuing the development of new GPUs in the new S3 Graphics graphics division, which means less competitor in the market for GPUs, and at least alternatives for users.
Apparently HTC S3 Graphics intends to use to increase their huge patent and collect royalties on many of the patents graphs are widely used in industry and S3 Texture Compression (S3TC) and others.
