Asustek is to sell 200,000 mobos fewer this month than it had originally anticipated - and it blames lack of Intel chip supplies for much of the shortfall.

The Taiwanese company, a key supplier for the OEM market, had expected to sell 1.2 million mobos this month, but now thinks it will sell only one million units.

Asustek also notes softer demand for its notebooks from major PC OEMs, upon which it relies for much of its turnover. Motherboards account for 60 per cent of revenue, and notebooks about 25 per cent.

David Chang, Asustek's deputy finance director, said he hoped the processor shortage would be over by September, according to a Bloomberg report. ®
