Intel Core X in short supply
Demand outstripping supply
Chipzilla seems to have made a mistake over the demand for its eight- and 10-core Core X processors for the high-end desktop market.
Word on the street is that you canít get your paws on eight- and 10-core Core X processors for love or money.
Part of the issue is that the Skylake-X-based Core X chips were based on the same chips Intel sells to its data-centre customers in the form of Xeon Scalable Processors. These punters are given more priority as data-centre customers generally dramatically outnumber the high-end desktop processor customers.
Another thought is that there is a suspicion that the chipís launch was rushed and there was not enough time to build inventories of some of these Core X chips. As are result Chipzilla did not get enough of the chips to distributors.
Like most rumours it brings up other questions Ė is Intel having difficulty making enough Core X chips?
