Motherboard makers are reportedly complaining about a lack of Intel H310 chipsets. DigiTimes writes production of this entry-level chipset, which was launched a month ago, is disrupted because of tight capacity on Intel's 14nm process. Intel decided to give priority to higher-end products, which is forcing motherboard makers to switch to the more expensive B360 for entry-level boards.
As H310 is widely adopted by makers of desktop motherboards, the ongoing supply disruption will further weaken demand during the low season in the second quarter, the sources lamented. Motherboard makers have been forced to adopt B360 as an alternative, which is similar in market position to H310 but carries higher cost.

Desktop motherboard makers originally expected to receive a boost from Intel's full 300 series during the traditional low season after the company released the entry-level H310, mainstream H370 and enterprise-use B360, Q360 and Q370 processors in early April.
The site's sources say fresh supply of H310 chipsets is expected in July at the latest.
