Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the electronics industry has experienced a real crisis. This is especially tested by fans of the current generation of consoles and graphics cards. Its availability causes white fever problems in potential buyers who dream of the latest equipment.

Some time ago, the assumptions, among other things, that Intel predicted an improvement in chip manufacturing in 2023. Unfortunately, the general manager of this American giant, Pat Gelsinger, in an interview with CNBC announceThat previous estimates were incorrect and that the problems will extend until 2024 (via VGC).

We believe the semiconductor shortage will shift from our previous estimate from 2023 to 2024 as equipment for component production (…) will also be affected, Gelsinger said.

The whole situation is associated with the limited production of components and the lack of tools for their manufacture. It is worth noting that AMD CEO Lisa Su, I expectedThat the chip shortage will begin to decline by the end of 2022. So far, Sue has not shared new forecasts with reporters, but most likely they will match those announced by Gelsinger.
