Intel CPU shortages seen lasting six more months

The Register reports executives from some of the largest PC makers revealed at the Canalys Channels Forum in Barcelona that the current shortage of Intel processors is expected to last another six months. Fortunately, the overall price of a computer should stay flat, as memory prices are currently dropping, and that acts as a balance for the higher CPU prices.
Talking at the Canalys Channels Forum in Barcelona today, HP CEO Dion Weisler described the situation as "unfortunate when any key component goes into shortage".

"Last year it was DRAM and the year before that we had the fire, and there were battery shortages, and the year before that we had a DRAM shortage," he said.

"There's always something in this industry, at the moment it happens to be chips from Intel, and I think that affects sub scale partners more than it affects larger partners."
