Sources close to Intel said today that the company has already started shipping volumes of its 370-pin Celerons at speeds of 333Mhz and 300MHz. And Intel has also started shipping 366MHz 370-pin ships in engineering quantities, the same source said. That follows reports from a number of motherboard manufacturers and distributors that they are having difficulty sourcing silicon. One distributor said: "So far I have not received any 370 pin parts, although I was expecting shipments in the first and second weeks of December. I haven't even had Intel picking notes for them yet." He claimed that large quantities of Slot One Celerons were sitting on shelves and suggested Intel wanted to purge these through the channel first. Taiwanese board manufacturer Soyo, in particular, is irritated at Intel's inability to supply parts in volume. "There's no point in shipping [370] motherboards in Europe until the beginning of next year because there isn't enough quantity in the channel," the source said. Other manufacturers including Evergreen, are also having trouble sourcing parts, he added. ®
