With ATI focused on AMD, there may be new opportunities for VIA and SIS:
Assuming that AMD, which recently acquired ATI, will eventually sell ATI chipsets bundled with its own processors, PC vendors may begin considering VIA and SiS as more preferable suppliers of entry-level chipsets for the Intel platform, the sources guessed.

ATI now has a right to develop chipsets for Intel Core-based processors featuring a 1066MHz FSB, the sources indicated. However, after revising ATI's latest roadmap, the sources found that ATI will maybe not support any Intel's desktop CPU with its new chipsets, beyond the RC610 chipset scheduled to be released in the first quarter of 2007.
