Distributors close to Intel's plans have suggested that a shortage of BX and ZX chipsets will not get better until the end of the year at the earliest. At the same time, Intel is taking steps to further encourage adoption of its i810 chipset by using it for Pentium III processors as well as Celeron chips, according to Techweb. According to UK, German and US distributors, there is no let up in the scarcity of BX motherboards, with preference being given to Intel's top OEMs and Chipzilla-only distributors. A German distributor we talked to at IDF last week said that because he was not an Intel-only house, he had found himself desparate for BX mobos, in order to meet demand from customers. Last month, it was confirmed that major Taiwanese mobo manufacturers were placed on strict allocations for the parts, leading many to place orders with Intel chipset rivals Via and SiS, rather than go with the unpopular i810. Intel will shortly introduce a modified version of the unpopular i810 chipset to support the Pentium III. The chip monster, however, denies that any shortage of BX/ZX chipsets is connected with its attempts to push the i810 and the up-and-coming i820 (Camino chipset). ®
