Intel Atom in short supply until September

Posted on Saturday, June 07 2008 @ 14:30:50 CEST by

Intel told the press this week that Atom will remain in short supply until September.
The Atom shortage was caused by this high level of demand for the chips from hardware makers, said Sean Maloney, executive vice president and general manager of Intel's Sales and Marketing Group, in an interview.

"We've got four 300-millimeter fabs, so we can really hose this stuff out," Maloney said, referring to Intel manufacturing plants that use 300mm silicon wafers to make chips. Around 2,500 Atom processors can be made on a single 300mm wafer.

"By September, there are going to be very, very high volumes," Maloney said.

Those chips won't arrive too soon for hardware makers, who are eager to get Atom-based laptops and desktops into the market.
