Intel Skylake CPUs to be in short supply?

Swedish tech site SweClockers heard rumors that Intel's first Skylake processors will be in short supply initially. The first two chips, the Core i7 6700K and Core i5 6600K, are expected to be introduced on August 5 at Gamescom. Now, we don't know why Skylake will be in short supply. The 14nm process isn't new and we haven't heard any rumors about poor yields. Perhaps this could be nothing more than a local issue in Sweden or Scandinavia, guess we'll see next week.
The report in question comes from Sweclockers.com, citing Anton Nilsson, manager of Webhallen (a Swedish Retailer). Now it could be that the problem is very much localizer, or it could be that Mr. Anton is simply mistaken. It could also be that he is right and there will be less Skylake to go around once the flood gates open. According to the reports there will be a limited quantity available at launch that will be used up within a few days. Since the launch is just a week away, I consider it pretty redundant to ponder on the validity or implications of these claims. In either case, we will know soon enough.
