Intel moves up schedule for Pentium E2000 and Celeron 400

According to sources familiar with Intel's plans, the company plans to move forward its production schedule for the 65nm Pentium E2000 dual-core series and Celeron 400 series (430 and 440) processors from the third quarter of this year to the second quarter, and Intel will increase its 65nm processor production ratio to over 90% by the end of the year.

The changes now have Taiwan-based motherboard makers worried that the shorter product cycles will lead them to having inventory issues for both processors and motherboards, and they indicated that Intel's frequently changing plans has placed pressure on their own motherboard production schedules.
