Their purchased from National Semiconductor Geode line of that time
(2002/2003) was pretty good. Then they stopped making the Pentium 233 Geode,
and produced an ARM Geode that they could not give away. The next Geode
was a 1gHz Athalon processor that used only 6 watts at maximum.

Compared to VIA's products and corporate policies of the time, they were
pretty nice.
