Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Taiwanese chip vendor Via bullishly announced today that its revenues should exceed $1 billion this year, leaving the company with ten per cent of the global microprocessor market in the process. Last year Via notched up sales worth $380 million, which means it's predicting a growth rate of over 215 per cent. Key to making that happen is flogging plenty of Cyrix processors - Via reckons it will make around $455 million selling 13 million CPUs, ten per cent of the 130 million PCs expected to be built this year. Sales of other chips - primarily graphics products acquired through its takeover of S3's chip business - should net it $773 million. Add those figures together and you get a over the $1 billion Via is expecting. ®
