Again problems with the Pentium 4
After the first models of the Pentium 4 with 1.4 GHz appeared in Japan, which are not authorized by Intel, Intel now seems to have problems with the production of Pentium 4 processors due to the recent Middle East conflict. The 'Fab18' factory is located in the middle of the crisis area.
If the Middle East conflict spreads further, the supply of Pentium 4 CPUs may be at stake. Should this happen, Intel could lose further market share to AMD.
