     VIA and SiS: Down 35% and 50% this year

    VIA and SiS are currently going through hard times. In the first half of 2007, revenue went down 35% and 50%, respectively, compared to the first half of last year. These poor performances are certainly in part related to the chipset price war that Intel and AMD are also taking part in. However, it’s also due to not meeting the objectives of these two Taiwanese manufacturers’ other components.

    Despite the latest rumors, VIA has apparently decided to release at least desktop and portable versions of its next chipsets. As for SiS, their future looks a little more serene due to better relations with Intel. In the fourth quarter, they should release up to five versions (with and without integrated graphic circuits) of the SiS 680. The most complete, the SiS 680SCE, which is destined for Core 2 Duo FSB 1333 MHz processors, has a Mirage 4 graphic core, supports HDMI/HDCP, but is limited to DDR2-1066 memory.

     AMD decreases of up to 30%

    As planned, AMD will proceed with lowering its prices. We can see the appearance of a Turion 64 X2 TL-66 set at 2.3GHz and an Athlon 64 X2 4200+ at 2.2GHz, and the disappearance of other lower processors in their respective segments. This decrease in prices is relatively significant as the Athlon X2 4000+ goes down almost 30%, while it isn’t as great for the rest of the line.

    You may remember, that Intel will also do the same on July 22 and as long as there won’t be any immediate innovations, AMD could only lightly anticipate this to limit the effect on its sales. As for the price of the Athlon 64 FX, this concerns the price for a pair of these processors, and surprisingly, it’s the same amount for the two models.
