Conroe may stumble at the starting blocks?

Delayed shipments of Intel G965 chipset may interrupt Conroe's march
Monica Chen, Taipei; Jessie Shen, DigiTimes.com [Monday 31 July 2006]

On July 27 when Intel announced its Core 2 Duo CPU lineup based on the Intel Core microarchitecture, the chip giant did not yet start shipments of its G965 chipset that may later appear as the chip giant's first chipset with DirectX 10 integrated graphics processor (IGP), according to unspecified motherboard makers in Taiwan. The makers expected Intel's C-1 stepping of the G965 to be ready for volume shipments at the same day with the launch of Conroe processors. However, a defect in the integrated graphics subsystem was found, and Intel notified its customers that next stepping, called C-2, which fixes the flaw, will likely not be shipped until the middle of August, the makers indicated.

Perhaps there are plenty of the new chipset(s) available and this is simply a case of stalling for time so that Conroes can build up in the 'channel?' Who knows what weavils lurk, yadda.

Id say its both in shortage... I've been looking around, and there appears to be very few models of mobos with conroe compatibility to pick from.

It seems that as Intels marketing has done a good job of building up demand for a good product... and that they can't supply the demand they created.
