VIA expects chipset shipments will increase 20 percent in 2006 as PCs and car makers demand more embedded technology.
In some areas such as, DX9 and PCI Express, they will even be giving the almighty Intel a good kicking, the article claims.

Chipsets compatible with PCE Express will account for 80 per cent of the company’s chipset shipments in 2006 and DDRII memory format will replace the DDR format half-way through next year, Via predicts.
