VIA will hike its chipset prices by 6-10% starting July 1 to reflect its rising production costs. This will be VIA’s second price increase this year, following a 5-8% increase in March. The planned price hikes will apply to VIA’s complete lines of chipsets, with entry-level models like the P4M400A and the KT400A subject to a higher increase, while higher-end models will suffer only a moderate rise in price. With TSMC extending its lead time to 12 weeks, VIA has already placed chipset orders with the foundry giant for deliveries in the third quarter.
