Intel has alerted its distributor and dealer channel to a shortage of ZX and BX chipsets.
In an email sent to its channel, the chip giant said: "Due to a worldwide chipset shortage on 440BX and 440ZX AGP sets, some Intel Branded Desktop Boards may have limited availability during the next few months.
"All 440BX and 440ZX based desktop boards are in extremely strong demand. Some current orders and all new orders received from Intel authorised distributors may have longer than expected lead times."
The motherboards affected are the SE440BX-2, the SR440BX, BI440ZX, and the RC440BX, Intel confirmed.
The shortage is obviously pretty serious, because Intel says the problem is affecting its entire customer base.
