Windows Vista causing component shortage

Posted on Saturday, October 28 2006 @ 14:06:52 CEST by

The launch of Windows Vista is coming closer and closer and PC makers say they are getting hit with a shortage for crucial components including processors, memory, chipsets and li-ion batteries. According to industry watchers Windows Vista is to blame:
Taiwan`s top five notebook-computer suppliers-Quanta, Compal, Wistron, Inventec and ASUS are competing to grab DRAM chips to fill their needs as Vista requires minimum memory capacity of 915MB, compared to the standard 512 Mb for current Windows XP OS.

Intel executives said they have felt supply shortage of the company`s chipsets and microprocessors and expected the problem to be eased sometime this quarter.
