According to this Digitimes Taiwan report , VIA aims to increase its production by 300% in year 2001 and intends to overtake Intel in terms of chipset production then. Also, VIA will be doing some sort of joint-venture with Motorola: Motorola will provide VIA with Alpha and Power PC technologies, and help VIA to release chipsets for servers by H2 2000. In exchange, VIA will provide Motorola with AGP 4X, AC97, USB and IEEE 1394 (Firewire) technologies. In the future VIA will further help Motorola with PC133 in exchange for copper technologies. The joint-venture will be limited to only chipsets and no cpus.
It is also reported that VIA is in close cooperation with AMD to come out with future versions of K7 chipsets. AMD's own K7 chipset, Irongate, will begin to cease production by the end of the year and VIA will take over the responsibility of supply K7 chipsets by next year.
