Intel won't quit low-end chipset market

Posted on Thursday, October 20 2005 @ 16:23:31 CEST by

At a conference call with analysts, Intel confirmed it continues to have shortages of chipsets and is using other suppliers to close the gap. Andy Bryant, the company's CFO, claims the shortage will continue in the fourth financial quarter, and likely for longer.

Currently the company is using ATI's chipsets for some low-end desktop motherboards.

He further added the shortage isn't caused by a manufacturing glitch, but because it's important for Intel to move its fabs to 300mm production. The company will re-enter the low-end chipset market when it has enough capacity.
Paul Otellini, CEO of Intel was also present at the conference call. He said that Intel has three events in its server line for Paxville DP, Paxville MP later this quarter and Bensley in Q1 which will give the firm a bigger pop. In Q1 it will introduce Sossaman and mid year there will be the next generation of 65 nanometre products. Those events happening over a quarter apiece give Intel a much more competitive roadmap, he said. "I'd be expect to be able to exploit it," he said. "We will ship the heck out of them when we get them."
