Intel Montevina chipset reportedly buggy, delayed

According to various sources, Intel's Montevina chipset has 3D graphics compatibility issues. Intel plans to release a software workaround which will correct the problem but cause a performance hit. Montevina is the successor to the Centrino line (sometimes called Centrino 2).

Many analysts have cited Intel as a potential threat to Nvidia's dominance in the notebook graphics chip market. Intel has a history of modest success in the graphics card market and I'm being kind -- some would say they've failed there, I think it's hard to say they've failed because they have 20% of the market.

This issue likely causes some flux in Intel's order patterns and may pressure ASPs over the near-term. It's probably good news for Nvidia, too.
