Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Tough Times for SiS/VIA - Tough Times for SiS/VIA
Wed, July 12 2006 | 3:42PM | PermaLink Feedback?

First tier notebook shipments will miss 2006 targets. Things are even worse for Taiwan's second tier notebook manufactureres and they're hurting. Both TSMC and UMC see order cuts in the fourth quarter. Man things are bad everywhere and SiS and VIA are suffering.

Taiwan-based chipset vendors VIA Technologies and Silicon Integrated System (SiS), which both posted sequential revenue declines in June, may continue suffering from unimproved performance in July, according to the Chinese-language Commercial Times. Since CPU prices are expected to decline in the end of July, with following PC inventory reductions, the two chipset makers will likely not see their sales increased this month, continuing to suffer from the slowdown in the global PC market, the paper noted. Supported by the new CPU prices and back-to-school demand, the worldwide PC market will start picking up in August, the paper said.
