The Inq reports Intel confirmed the company is lacking capacity at fabs.
An Intel representative told Intel lacks capacity at its eight inch (200mm) fabs which are used to to produce chipsets and flash memory. The 12-inch (300mm) chipsets fabs are also full to capacity as well.
This may mean a short-term benefit for third party licensees such as VIA, SiS, ULi, NVIDIA and ATI who all produce chipsets for Intel Pentium 4 processors.
In the second half of thi syear Intel's Chandler and Leixlip plant will start churning out 65nm processors.
