ATI has pledged to ease the tight supply of its graphics chips by the end of the month.

Company chairman and CEO KY Ho told reporters in Taipei last week that the shortage would be resolved shortly, according to DigiTimes.

Mobility parts in particular should be widely available, thanks to the company's decision not to lower Q2 production targets, despite a Q1 dip in worldwide notebook sales, Ho said. He believes the dip in notebook demand will prove short-lived, with sales flat during Q2 but rising in Q3 and beyond.

ATI will ship its first PCI Express chipsets next quarter, with the new interface reaching unit-shipment parity with AGP 8x by the end of the year, according to Ho. ®
