Intel CPU Shortage Could Worsen In Q2 2019

The CPU shortage that constrained Intel CPU sales and sent prices trending higher through the back of 2018 could continue to plague Intel through Q2 of this year. While the firm has taken steps to combat the problem, including launching new “KF” processors without integrated GPUs to improve yields, Intel may have been unable to fully address the issue.

Some research orgnization argues that the Intel’s CPU shortage is still ongoing and could yet worsen in Q2, 2019. The shortage, which has shrunk to a 2-3 percent gap, is expected to expand again, with the Core i3 taking over from the Core i5 as the CPU hardest-hit by the shortages.

Since Q3/Q4 last year 2018, we can see the shortage on all embedded computer suppliers. Equally, TAICENN had a same severe situation with Intel CPUs processors, which harm to our customers with uncontrollable delivery. One reason is the severe shortage in the market, makes it very hard to do forecast and production plan in the factory, so the stock plan is always very difficult; Another point, the severe shortage increased the high materials cost too much. We had ever experineced 30~40% inflation of CPU price, even 50%, so as to deliver shipment as promised. However, TAICENN is impossible to increase the price on the confirmed PO.


As a solution provider & manufacturer of embedded computing system, TAICENN always want to provide the quick & flexible support to our customers. Regarding to the practical CPU shortage issue, we really hope our customers can work tight with us, and do forecast to us as early as you can. TAICENN will do all needs to serve customers.
