DigiTimes
reported that Intel may postpone the chipset launch originally slated for
January 2008 by 1-2 months because one of the first-tier motherboard makers
still holds a large volume of X38 chipset inventory. The motherboard maker fears
that the X48 chipset will slow down clearance of its X38 chipset inventory and
has negotiated with Intel to delay the launch of its X48 chipset. However the
delay is expected to hurt makers who do not have an overstock X38 chipsets. Each
motherboard maker has already received X48 A1 test samples from Intel and sent
back 10 motherboards for debugging.
