VIA Technologies posted sales of $66.36m in March (NT$2.32bn), 0.87 per cent up on February, but 48.37 per cent down on the same period last year, when the Taiwanese core logic designer posted revenues of $128,545m.

SiS, its chipset rival, by contrast saw March sales rise 16 per cent on February, posting revenues of NT$ 1.286bn for the month.

SiS sales for the quarter are 50 per cent up on Q1, 2001, while VIA's sales are down 29 per cent year-on-year, according to this helpful table compiled by Digitimes.

VIA has a bigger product portfolio than SiS and remains twice its size in turnover terms, but it lacks that crucial product licence from Intel to sell chipsets for the P4. SiS, an official licensee, is the major beneficiary of the legal spat between Intel and VIA, mopping up business that would otherwise naturally go VIA's way. ®
