Intel P45 delayed to mid-June

Sources at motherboard makers claim Intel is forced to delay the release of its P45 chipset to mid-June due to PCI Express x16 compatibility problems:
The delay of the chipset is due to problems over compatibility between the chipset's PCI Express x16 port and graphics cards, noted the sources, adding that Intel has notified them that the problem should be solved and ready to launch 2-4 weeks behind the original launch schedule.

Some motherboard makers pointed out that the delay will give them more time to clear up their P35 inventory, however, the comparability problem will surely damage Intel's image over technological development.
