Infineon is to blame for the Xbox 360 console shortage, EE Times reports:<
Takahashi’s report claimed that Infineon has been unable to produce enough GDDR3 (graphics double date rate) memory chips, which are also supplied by Samsung. Some of the Infineon chips are reported to run slower than the 700 MHz necessary, potentially slowing down the entire system, and it is these that have had to be weeded out of the manufacturing process.
