Lack of fast Coppermine chips from Intel is causing even big players in the PC industry to drastically adjust their schedules, costing them time, money and face. Reliable reports say that Intel will not now be able to ship its 700MHz Pentium III part until January 2000 at the earliest, while there are also availability problems with a number of other components, as previously reported. Sources close to Fujitsu Siemens have now told The Register that the giant is telling its customers of problems sourcing not only Coppermine processors but also the ZX chipset in December. The new Coppermine processors were announced to a blare of publicity in October, but large OEMs such as Fujitsu Siemens are being told they will not have stock of many of these chips until after the 15 November. Totally coincidentally, it appears, this is the date that Intel says the i820 (Caminogate) chipset will be ready. Our thanks, again, to an Israeli reader who pointed out that Timna, the codename for Intel's system-on-a-chip part, is the name of a town in the country which has a played out copper mine. ® See also Huge shortages, technical problems hit Intel Coppermine debut Intel CuMine chips: now the gold mine is official Intel's CuMine fails to dampen AMD Athlon squib Japanese punters get Coppermine trickle treat
