The situation with VIA and NVIDIA shipments

According to the latest reports from Taiwanese mobo makers, VIA Technologies decided to move the volume production of KT400A and P4X600 chipsets to early 2003. Previous schedule had the release of DDR400-supporting KT400A later this year, and the release of P4X600 DDR chipset in November.

But VIA has posted the corrected information. According to it, chipset samples are ready, P4X600 volume production is scheduled to the year-end. I.e. release dates remain the same. Besides, this year the company is going to announce KM400 integrated chipset for AMD 7, which volume production is scheduled to Q1 2003.

As VIA novelties won´t become widespread this year, some makers count this as a good chance for NVIDIA nForce2 to spread. Still nForce2 higher price and smaller production do not affect VIA´s market share much.

According to industry sources, volume shipments of discrete nForce2 SPP started only in November. Volume shipments of integrated version, nForce2 IGP, are scheduled to early December. The sale price of nForce2 SPP and nForce2 IGP boards is expected to be about $70 and $85, respectively (FOB prices I guess).
