Intel Chairman Expects Chip Shortage to Continue
Intel Corp.'s chairman, Gordon Moore, expects the worldwide shortage of memory chips to continue into 1989, perhaps as late as the third quarter of next year.
“We will see a shortage well into next year. Perhaps it will ease in the first quarter or maybe the third quarter (of 1989),” Moore said.
The prediction of a continuing shortage contrasts with the view of some analysts who predict that the shortage of dynamic random access memory (DRAM) chips will subside by late 1988.
