ATI, Nvidia Demand Outweighs Supply
9:39 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

MacUser has noted a recent article by DigiTimes regarding supply problems with both ATI and Nvidia graphics chips. Due to the high demand on their high end GPUs, including ATI's 9800 series and Nvidia's FX series, both companies have been unable to provide a matching supply.

In addition, both companies are giving more priority to OEM orders:

Sources said that with ATI shipping products first to OEM customers like IBM, NEC, Dell Computer and Hewlett-Packard (HP), its more own-brand-oriented add-in board (AIB) clients, such as Gigabyte Technology, CP Technology and Info-Tek Corporation (ITC) (selling under the brand name GigaCube), are able to obtain only 50% of the chips they ordered.
In a related note, the article adds that Nvidia's ability to meet the demand seems to have customers shifting their focus to ATI, though their own supply problem may make it difficult for them to fill the gap.
