ZDNet bevestigd het eerder door The Register naar buiten gebrachte nieuws dat Intel met leveringsproblemen voor de 733MHz Coppermine kampt:
Major PC manufacturers are reporting shortages of Intel Corp.'s fastest processor, the 733MHz Pentium III, spurring some delays in PC deliveries.
An executive at Micron Electronics Inc. said the shortage has become a daily frustration for him and is forcing the computer maker to "juggle a lot."
Lyle Jordan, Micron's senior vice president of worldwide supply chain operations, said he's constantly in contact with Intel executives about the latest Pentium III chips.
"I actually talk to them every single day, and I never do that [with suppliers]," Jordan said. "It's something that in my two years at Micron I haven't experienced."
