We were first hinted on a shortage of Core mobile CPUs from Intel last month and it doesn't look like it's going to get better anytime soon.
According to a fresh report over at PCWorld, available 32nm Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 notebook processors for partners are lessening and it's apparently causing some laptop makers to postpone launches by up to three months or more.
Another downside to the shortage is cost. A bidding war has been triggered for these parts out of desperation which has shown price hikes of as much as 20%, which of course will be pushed onto the consumer.
As a result, it opens the doors wider for AMD to gain some more market share in what is one of the fastest growing segments in the PC industry.
