AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su predicts that supply of CPU and GPU will improve as TSMC Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. will improve the manufacturing plan throughout 2021.
In an interview done by Bloomberg she claims that this is just a “Megacycle” of the semiconductor industry.
“But I have to tell you, this industry is also really good at managing these things. And you know, it does take a while for the supply and demand imbalance to balance itself out, but we are very much working together as an industry.” Claims Su while being interviewed by Bloomberg
Quoting “Semiconductor industries go through cycles” she said “sometimes supply is much greater than demand and sometimes demand is much greater than supply.
Many experts believe that global ship supply shortages are due to the pandemic, as more people need a laptop to work from home, or study from home using zoom call.
Some theorists believe that it’s due to crypto currency mining. As the new GPU is a “free money making machine” for miners. Hoggin up all the available GPU supplies.
