CPU supply shortages to ease before next month?
Reports of AMD processor shortages have been making the rounds around since as far back as early October. AMD even agreed to talk to us about the subject earlier this month, but it stayed fairly vague about when the shortages might ease. However, DigiTimes has caught an article in the Chinese-language Apple Daily that quotes some motherboard makers as saying supply is expected to pick up again in "late November." The motherboard makers claim this information comes straight from AMD and Intel, which also suggests AMD isn't the only one running into supply problems. That said, the same sources tell the Apple Daily that Intel's shortages seem to be on their way out. Distributors, on the other hand, say there is still no breakthrough on the AMD side of things.
