|Citing design problems, Intel has pushed back the release of its second major notebook chip this year. The Alviso chipset for Pentium M notebooks, slated for autumn, won't hit the market until 2005.
The company still plans to start shipping the chipset to PC makers in the fourth quarter, but notebooks incorporating it won't arrive until early 2005, the sources said. It appears that an exact launch date has yet to be determined.
Design and timing problems contributed to the delay. Sources said early versions of Alviso were not up to Intel's standards, requiring more design work. Further, releasing the chip any later than early in the fourth quarter would make it too late for notebook makers' 2004 plans.
|While not making an official announcement, the Santa Clara, Calif., company has begun telling some customers of its new plans. Intel still plans to release the processor to OEMs as scheduled, but a source said "technical and marketing factors" have caused it to push back the formal launch date.|
