Sources familiar with the latest plans of Intel Corporation, the world’s largest chipmaker, said the company is still considering its strategy with the introduction of processors in LGA775 packaging and appropriate platforms, as some doubt the firm would be in a position to deliver sufficient quantities of new chips.

Numerous web-sites Monday said there is intention of Intel Corporation to postpone the introduction of its new generation of chipsets, such as i915P, i915G or i925X, as well as 90nm processors in LGA775 packaging from May to June as a result of an undisclosed reason.

Sources among mainboard makers said they were ready to start shipping mainboards based on Intel’s new chipsets code-named Grantsdale and Alderwood nearly right after CeBIT 2004 Hannover show in mid-March. However, producers of mainboards expected Intel to ship new revisions of its chipsets in April before starting to make its products in volume quantities. The only thing that could impact the introduction time-frame were said to be processors for Socket T, the socket that Intel certifies to work with the new chipsets as well as LGA775 processors.

New core-logic sets from Intel – i915G, i915P, i925X – will bring dual-channel DDR2 SDRAM memory, PCI Express x16 and x1 lanes for add-in cards, Intel Extreme Graphics 3 as well as some other important capabilities, such as integrated WLAN or promising RAID technologies.

Some said that Intel might launch the Grantsdale and Alderwood chipsets along with LGA775 in late May or early June 2004, if everything would be according to the Santa Clara, California-based chipmaker’s plans. More pessimistic sources suggested that Intel intended to start formal shipments of its new products only in late June only with retail parts actually emerging in July.

Intel did not issue official claims on the report. Reasons for possible delays are not clear.
