VIA begins sampling of PT890 PCI Express chipset in January

Posted on Tuesday, December 09 2003 @ 13:29:43 CET by

In January 2004 VIA will begin sampling the PT890 chipset. The PT890 supports 800MHz FSB Pentium 4 processors, DDR II memory and PCI Express. VIA hopes to be able to present motherboards based on this chipset in march 2004 at CeBIT.
With an additional product in its P4 chipset lineup, VIA hopes to overtake Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) in the P4 chipset market before the second quarter of next year. VIA is the third-largest P4 chipset vendor, trailing Intel and SiS. VIA launched two P4 chipsets – the PT800 and PT880 – earlier this year.

VIA has the lead in the Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) chipset market, capturing about a 70-80% and 90% share in the K7 and K8 chipset markets, respectively. According to VIA, it ships about three million chipsets a month, with a 50:50 split between Intel and AMD platforms.

In addition, company president Chen Wen-chi expects the company’s loss-making processor business will turn profitable next year.

SiS plans to begin sampling the SiS656, a P4 chipset supporting PCI Express, in January.
