In 1995, Centaur Technology set out to prove that a small team of microprocessor
engineers could design an affordable x86 processor for the neglected sub-$1000 PC market. At the time,
it was a visionary idea.
Now, fourteen years later, Centaur has successfully designed the world's
smallest x86 processors, has shipped thirteen different parts, and consistently provides the fastest design
cycle in the industry-from concept to completion in about 9 months, 1/3 the time of our competitors.
Centaur’s relationship with parent company VIA Technologies, the #2 chipset maker in the world after Intel,
has positioned us to be the dominant force in bringing PC power to developing nations.
New challenges are just ahead for Centaur Technology’s visionary solutions.
