According to Reuters, Intel said on Wednesday that it is difficult to supply chips in time due to increased market demand. For this reason, Intel is considering finding more chip manufacturers for outsourcing.

Intel said that the company has expanded its production capacity, and the supply of PC chips in the second half of the year has increased by more than 10% compared with the first half of the year, but the supply is still very tight. In fact, as early as October this year, Intel has said that market demand has grown faster than Intel’s expansion, and may outsource CPU manufacturing.

Intel further stated that despite its best efforts, it still failed to complete this challenge. At the same time, Intel also apologized to its customers and partners.
