Intel's G965 chipset faces delays

— 9:49 AM on July 31, 2006

Shipments of Intel's G965 chipset, the integrated graphics flavor of the Core 2-bound P965 Express, have been postponed to mid-August, motherboard manufacturers have told DigiTimes. The manufacturers say they expected volume shipments of the G965 on July 27 to coincide with the Core 2 Duo launch, but that a flaw in the chipset's integrated graphics caused Intel to hold off shipments until a new C-2 stepping that fixes the problem is ready. This new stepping will "likely not be shipped until the middle of August," Intel reportedly told its customers. Motherboard makers fear this delay may hurt sales of Core 2-based product. Dell, for instance, has only announced three desktop machines with Core 2 support so far, and they're all priced above the $1,500 mark with discrete graphics cards.
