Ik kwam op de site van Beyond Computing wat info tegen over het tekort aan BH6sen op de Amerikaanse markt (hier in Nederland zijn ze nog wel redelijk leverbaar geloof ik). Wat hieronder staat zijn is pure speculatie:
Looks like a hell of a week for overclockers. First the 300A is gone, and now the BH6 motherboard supply has completely vanished. We got 30 boards in this morning and it was all gone by afternoon. Lots of rumors are brewing as to why the supply is so low. There's the infamous "Intel and Abit agreement on distribution" theory, but the latest 2 I've heard from the distribution circle are the interesting ones. First one from one of my distributors is that Abit are in serious financial problems in the east. I'm not sure of how accurate that one is, but as I said, it's just a rumor. The other rumor from another distributor is that Abit is closing down their plant for 10 days because of the Chinese new years. Again, this rumor doesn't make much sense, as we've been running low on BH6's for a long time, and chinese new years hasn't started yet. More info will be posted as soon as I get it.
