Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

A 20 per cent increase in desktop processor shipments during its third fiscal quarter helped VIA narrow its loss to TWD50m ($1.5m), the chip maker said today.

That's less than a third of the TWD1.68bn ($50m) loss the company posted at the end of its second quarter. VIA's sales were up almost 25 per cent sequentially, from Q2's TWD4.49bn ($134m) to Q3's TWD5.59bn ($167m).

According to a Merrill Lynch report cited by DigiTimes, that revenue jump and the shipments behind it took VIA's share of the x86 desktop CPU market to 2.5 per cent during Q3 - small, perhaps, but nonetheless an improvement on its share in Q2. Then, according to Mercury Research figures, it shared 1.8 per cent of the x86 market with Transmeta and other x86 CPU makers. ®
