Intel Faces More Chipset Shortages

On Wednesday, Intel acknowledged that the short supplies for its notebook-based chipsets will continue at least until the first half of 2006.

HILLSBORO, Ore. — Intel Corp. on Wednesday (Nov. 30) said that it expects to see shortages for its chipset lines at least until the first half of 2006.

For months, the microprocessor giant has experienced shortages for its notebook-based chipsets in the marketplace. Intel’s chipset lines are still “tight” and the shortages are expected to extend until a “fair portion for the first part of next year,” said Andy Bryant, senior vice president and chief financial officer at Intel.

Intel’s chipsets are manufactured in the company’s 200-mm fabs. As previously stated, the company hopes to bring up chipset production in its 300-mm fabs by the second quarter of 2006, he said during a presentation at the company’s manufacturing and technology summit.
