Intel E8000 CPU family shortage spurs pricing up over 20%

Although it is not long since Intel launched its 45nm E8000 series CPUs, shortages have already been observed in the Taiwan channel. The lack of supply has spurred prices to increase by over 20%, prompting many consumers to hold off their consumption, according to sources in the channel.

Intel introduced the E8000 desktop CPU series, which feature enhanced performance and power efficiency, on January 20. Despite that the launch drew attention, Intel's strategically planned shipments have led to a shortage, the sources said.
