Intel's latest notebook chips in short supply

Written by Nick Farell

Everyone wants them


It seems
that Intel's latest Core i7/i5/i3 series notebook processors are in short supply.

According to Digitimes it is because Acer, optimistic about the upcoming demand for the related notebooks, has placed large volume of orders for the beasts. Apple is also expected to follow suit and is almost certain to have placed large scale orders.

While Intel expected the chips to do rather well, the price of the flagship i7 was considered a bit off putting. Apparently Intel has had to ration the chips, and is giving priority to major clients. Second-tier and smaller notebook players have to wait much longer before receiving supply of the CPUs, Digitimes claims.
