AN INTEL official has confirmed that there's a shortage of Sonoma chipsets - which may well explain why machines using the premier semiconductors are so hard to find in the wild.

Jerry Kao, from Intel Asia, told a Taipei Times reporter that there is a shortage but that things are gradually improving.

But, he said, supply isn't likely to meet demand until April or as late as May. The firm introduced the long-awaited and delayed Sonoma chipset in January with great fanfare.

The Sonoma chipset supports the "Dothan" 90 nanometre Pentium M, and a faster front side bus.

The newspaper said that the shortage of chipsets has affected a number of vendors' offerings including HP and Acer. µ
