Nvidia warns you of the shortage of supply that could happen for the rest of 2021 if you plan to buy a new RTX 30 series GPU in the coming months. “We expect demand to continue to exceed supply for most of this year,” Nvidia CFO Colette Kress said at an investor teleconference earlier this week. said.
This means that the challenges of finding a new 30-series GPU will likely continue until 2022. Nvidia had previously warned that the product supply would likely remain weak during the first fiscal quarter. We are now approaching this turning point, that is, we are approaching the end of April. There seems to be no significant improvement in supply meeting demand.
TSMC and Intel are also warning that chip supply problems could last until 2022. The global chip shortage has forced some automakers to downsize in production. Consumers are finding it almost impossible to find new graphics cards, CPUs, PS5s and Xboxes.
Despite the problems, Nvidia predicts that supply will increase as 2021 progresses. “We will see that the supply will continue to increase this quarter and throughout the year,” said Kress. said. Regardless, it will still be difficult to find a new GPU when you have to compete with gamers, crypto miners and black marketers who are out of control of the actual prices of GPUs.
