National healthcare and financial catastrophe have been intertwined from the start of the COVID-19 outbreak. Scattered worldwide logistic chains are the result of production halts and travel bans, as well as the absence of healthy labor.
The silicon microchip industry has been particularly hard impacted, having to deal with both an increase in worldwide consumption and a fragmented distribution network. Anything spanning from high-end graphics processors to consoles has been affected by this microchip scarcity. Now the industry is saying that this problem will endure until 2024.
Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger, Says-
Distribution network concerns have likewise affected sophisticated machinery needed to make silicon circuits, according to Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger, who spoke to CNBC.
One explanation for the shift in our previous forecasts of a 2023 semiconductor shortfall is that the constraints have already damaged machinery and certain plant ramping would be increasingly difficult to complete, according to Gelsinger.
There is a scarcity of silicon, which has prompted several businesses to look for their personal source. Both Sony and Intel are investing billions of dollars in new semiconductor factories in the United States.
By creating its unique graphics card, the billion-dollar organization hopes to immediately address the scarcity of graphics cards. Arc GPUs were unveiled by the business during the summertime of 2013 and a buzzard search was held to give away the 1st batch of the new chips.
Because of this, we have an estimate of how much these future GPUs would price (according to certain fast calculations by Rock Paper Shotgun).
The recipient of the “performance” Arc GPU award, La Frite David, commented on social media that the cards plus three months of Xbox Game Pass for Windows had a combined market worth of almost $700. After deducting the price of a Game Pass membership, the card itself is worth approximately $650.
Evan Stenger, the grand prize recipient, received a “premium” card as well as a six-month subscription to Game Pass, valued at $900. With Game Pass removed, the Arc GPU will cost you around $800 at full price.
As interest for existing GPUs declines, rates decrease, however, this is more probably owing to a shift in attention to the next iteration, which Nvidia is expected to introduce sometime in 2022.
