Asustek CEO Jerry Shen said shipments of the company's DIY and related motherboards are hit by the shortage of Intel's processors. As we've covered before, Intel's 14nm capacity is completely utilized and this is resulting in chip shortages as the processor giant is unable to fulfill all orders.

Intel is investing to increase its capacity, but Shen believes the shortage will continue into the second quarter of 2019.
Although Intel has pledged to address the supply issues since September and has continued to pour investments to ramp up output from its 10nm process, the tight CPU supplies have not been solved as the US chipmaker has given the priority to the production of high-end Xeon and Core series CPUs, instead of CPUs for the entry-level or other consumer models, Shen indicated.

However, with Intel maintaining its shipments of CPUs to the server and gaming PC sectors, Asustek's gaming PC business has seen little impact from the CPU shortfalls, Shen noted.
