Intel resuming 865-series chipset production may negatively affect Via, SiS

Third-party chipset suppliers including Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) and VIA Technologies could suffer from Intel's resuming production of its 865-series chipsets, as Intel's current 865-series offerings are priced only slightly higher than equivalent chipset series from SiS and VIA, according to unspecified motherboard makers in Taiwan.

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.
