Intel CPU shortages to worsen in 2nd quarter 2019

Shortages of Intel's CPUs are expected to worsen in the second quarter compared to the first as demand for Chromebooks, which are mostly equipped with Intel's entry-level processors, enters the high period, according to Digitimes Research.

Digitimes Research expects Intel CPUs' supply gap to shrink to 2-3% in the first quarter with Core i3 taking over Core i5 as the series hit hardest by shortages.

The shortages started in August 2018 with major brands including Hewlett-Packard (HP), Dell and Lenovo all experiencing supply gaps of over 5% at their worst moment.

Well that's not helpful: with the imminent death of Windows 7 & subsequent high demand for replacement systems... Don't wait too long - start planning for replacement / upgrade of older systems now. Contact Donline for advice.
