Intel's CPU shortage will reportedly get worse in Q2 2019 - AMD to gain notebook market share

For the past year or so Intel has been experiencing a CPU supply shortage, with the company's manufacturing capabilities failing to meet the demand for the company's desktop and enterprise-grade processors, placing a strain on the overall PC market while forcing some vendors to base more of their products on AMD processors. 

A report from DigiTimes has claimed that Intel's CPU shortage will get worse in Q2 2019, especially as demand from Chromebooks and other low-spec systems enter their peak. Intel has reportedly prioritised their 14nm production towards their high-end products, ensuring that the company generates the highest possible margins from their sales, hoping to prevent their competitors from gaining market share in the lucrative enterprise market. 

Intel's shortages are set to force more PC manufacturers to move towards AMD-based solutions, with the company's recently announced Chromebook CPUs acting as a potential growth vector for the company in 2019 as Intel's supply of low-cost chips is constrained. AMD's low-end Ryzen/Athlon Mobile CPUs are also expected to see wider adoption, with AMD's notebook market share being expected to reach 18% in Q2 2019.

In the second half of 2019, Intel's expanded 14nm production capacity will likely end the company's processor shortage. DigiTimes has reported that Intel's 14nm production capacity will increase by 25%, eliminating Intel's supply shortage. DigiTimes also believes that Intel still has many issues to resolve with their 10nm node, despite the company's commitment to entering 10nm mass production in the second half of 2019.
