Do You Feel It? No Chip On Our Shoulders: Semi-conductors Shortage
 
# 1 : Thursday 29-4-2021 @ 20:29
 
 
There is a world shortage of semiconductors, and this of computer chips.
As a result my work won't refresh our computers before another 1 or 2 years!

Do you start feeling the shortage: less devices, more expensive.

Impossible to buy top end GPUS at the moment.
I've a pain in my arse trying to source gear for builds.

It's sent the market crazy. I sold a 2 year old used GPU at a €70 profit because it's a good mining card.

That's a bummer

Send to have started with car makers, and now spreading to smaller electronics.
It could be a contender with water as the trigger for the next WW.

Maybe it will be a good thing and encourage more companies give customers a discount if they recycle their old hardware when upgrading, lots of tech companies already do it but I'm sure there are still tons of old chips filling landfills all over the world so it's not so much a shortage as a case of "well we could get the materials we need if we tried but it would take a lot of effort and our stock holders prefer if we spend less money on short term solutions that will cost us more in the long run than lots of money on long term goals that will save us a fortune 10 years down the line" so there's not a shortage of materials there is a shortage of effort to get the materials.

If every big company got together and invested say $100mil each into a combined effort to build massive recycling plants around all the major dumps and land fills around the world in 5 years they would have all the materials they need, have started solving one of the biggest problems on the planet and most likely turn a decent profit too but something like that would take too much long term effort and god forbid they would all actually co-operate on something for once.

I'd say, it's screwing a lot of businesses?
