DigiTimes has some updates about SiS and VIA. While SiS delivered a growth last month VIA's revenue slightly dropped:
In July, SiS recorded revenues of NT$539 million (US$16.39 million), an increase of 31% on month and 16.59% compared to the NT$462 million from the same period a year previous.
Although performance starting to climb in July, with SiS' first half of 2007 performance affected by price competition among CPU makers and moves towards platform standardization, the chip maker's accumulated revenues for the first seven months in 2007 were only NT$2.88 billion, a drop of 44.71% compared NT$5.21 billion in the same period of 2006.
VIA's July revenues were NT$1.351 billion, a slight drop of 0.56% on month and 10.53% on year.
VIA's accumulated revenues for the first seven months in 2007 were NT$9.75 billion, a drop of 32.8% compared to the NT$14.51 billion recorded in the same period of 2006. However, VIA still expects Windows Vista to boost PC demand in the second half of 2007 and assist shipments of its new Isaiah processors after launch.
