Intel chipset supply still tight, enhanced Celeron D processors to come

Supply of Intel's 915G-series chipsets continue to be tight mostly due to a shortage of the entry-level chipsets in the channel market, whereas the recent shortage of its discrete 945G line may improve slightly in the first quarter of 2006, according to motherboard makers in Taiwan.

Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) and VIA Technologies, respectively, are scheduled to roll out PCI Express (PCIe) chipsets equivalent to Intel's 915G series in the first quarter of next year, following ATI Technologies' Radeon Xpress 200 series for the Pentium 4 platform, motherboard makers expect.
