SiS and VIA won't be happy because Intel has resumed production of its 865 series chipsets. These chipsets are priced only a bit higher than equivalent chipset series from SiS and VIA .
Third-party chipset players are expected to need to adjust their respective product roadmaps for the first half of 2006 in order to prevent a chipset oversupply at motherboard makers if Intel again considers a production shift by the middle of this year, suggested the makers.

Motherboards based on Intel’s 865 series will likely ship to European, US, and Southeast Asian markets, whereas boards based on SiS’ SiS661, VIA’s VIA P4M800, and ATI Technologies’ RC410 will be for contract manufacturing orders and emerging markets, the makers noted.
