DigiTimes backs up earlier rumors about shortages of Intel processors. The site says unstable shipments of Intel's new Tiger Lake-U Refresh processors, as well as ongoing shortages of certain electronics components, will likely result in shortages of laptops in Q3 2021.
Intel new CPUs in tight supply: Unstable shipments of Intel's recently introduced Tiger Lake-U Refresh processors, coupled with the ongoing shortages of certain ICs, will put pressure on the supply chain in releasing notebooks with the new processors in the third quarter of 2021, according to industry sources.
While Intel has been less affected than other players, partly due to having its own manufacturing capacity, the firm is not immune as some parts need to be sourced from third parties. Last week, it was rumored that poor availability of USB power chips could tamper with the availability of Tiger Lake laptops.
