Intel to delay next CULV chips due to poor demand

Intel, urged by Acer's halt of production of its ultra-thin notebooks, has delayed launching new ultra-thin notebook processors until the summer, according to unnamed industry sources speaking in a Friday DigiTimes report. Acer will instead focus on building Intel Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 TimelineX ultraportables. Intel may delay the CULV processors even further depending on market demand come summertime, the same sources added.

Acer, like other makers of CULV-based notebooks, saw a smaller demand than expected, with about half of the expected 20 to 30 percent market share in 2009. Because of this, these manufacturers are reducing orders in order to sell off the excess inventory.

ASUS VP Tony Chen said CULV notebook demand from Taiwan and China remains strong, at about 40 percent of the market, but worldwide demand accounts for about 15 percent of all shipments.
