Due to increasing demand for motherboards in the third quarter this year, Intel chipsets are already showing signs of running short, therefore Intel decided to adopt the SiS671 chipset for its mid-range and entry-level motherboards, noted sources at channel vendors.
One of the reasons that Intel decided to use the chipset from SiS is due to the low profit margins offered by mid-range and entry-level chipsets. The adoption will assist Intel to keep its mid-range and entry-level market share, while decreasing extra spending, noted the sources.
