Intel to boost SiS chipset orders

By on May 28, 2007, 12:59 PM
Looking to maximize profit margins by moving away from the low-margin chipset business, Intel Corp. is reportedly planning to increase orders of SiS671 and SiS672 chipsets from Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) in the third quarter of 2007, according to a Chinese-language Economic Daily News report.

SiS's quarterly revenues and chipset shipments are expected to increase 30-50%, while SPIL and KYEC are expected to see a 10% on-quarter growth in revenues in the third quarter. Also UMC is expected to have the utilization rate boosted at its 12-inch wafer fab, noted the paper citing sources at foreign investors.
Both SiS671 and SiS672 support integrated DirectX 9 compliant graphics core, DDR2 memory and Intel Core 2 as well as Pentium D processors.
