Boxed P4 shortages? What shortages

Plenty around

If there was a channel drought of boxed versions of Intel's P4s earlier in the week things seem to have eased up now.

The word from resellers was that Intel was telling anyone who wants to order a 1.7GHz P4 they'll have to wait at least four weeks for it - no matter how many they order, and the other versions of the P4 - 1.3GHz, 1.4GHz and 1.5GHz - were also in short supply. But Microtronica is telling us there's plenty around.

Line manager Steve Keene said he had stock, could get more, and Intel was running daily replenishment. He thought the only reason dealers might have had a problem is if they hadn't ordered enough to account for any backlogs. "But they should only be four days away from supply. The turn round time is four days max," he said.

Dabs.com is showing a couple of Pentium 4 1.3Ghz with 2x64Mb RIMMs available to ship, but all other boxed P4s require a wait of three to four days.

Direct reseller Simply said it had boxed P4 1.7GHz with either 2x64MB RIMMs or 2x128MB RIMMs in stock.

Keene said business had been well up since the P4 price drop kicked in on Monday 29 April. ®
