Intel 945G Chipset Face Shortage

Intel’s chipset shortage has extended from its entry-level PCIe 915 series to the high-end 945G line. Tight supply of the chip giant’s 915 chipset has disrupted OEM shipments of high-end Pentium 4-based motherboards, as well as migration to DDR2. Meanwhile, the makers hinted that an insufficient supply of the 945G chipset, which supports dual-channel DDR2 memory, might hold back the migration to DDR2. An Intel chipset shortage will be tough to sort out in the next six-months and expect that 90nm-made chipsets will not overtake the current mainstream 0.13-micron segment by the third quarter of 2007.
