Can't be the Cyrix III, must be chipsets

Plucky Taiwanese chipset company today revised upwards its forecast financial results for this year.

Its figures have improved, it says, because of high second half demand.

Via had forecast its pre-profit figure as NT$3.69 billion but now predicts it will turn in $9.01 billion for the year 2000 to 31 December.

The figures are based on net sales forecasts of $NT 30,000,000,000 (US $983,606,000) as compared to the $NT 20,863,138,000 (US $684,037,000).

Lots of zeros there. But when we were in Taipei in June, we encountered several major motherboard manufacturers who had either completely, or partly defected from Intel to Via.

The forecast is not separated out into different business lines, such as chipsets, CPU and comms parts. ®
