A Chinese newspaper claims Intel will suffer chipset shortages in the second half of this year:
With the recent CPU price cuts boosting motherboard demand, it has been reported that Intel chipsets are to face shortages in the third and fourth quarters of this year, according to a Chinese-language Economic Daily News (EDN) report citing sources at downstream makers.

The shortages will result in an increase in demand for chipsets from VIA Technologies and Nvidia, noted the paper.
Second-tier motherboard makers will be hurt most as Intel is more likely to supply chipsets to first-tier makers as a priority.
