HoggleIt's a lot of money to spend at $100 billion but the key thing is "Over 3 years" by that time the PS5 and 3090 shouldn't be in short supply I would hope. 2024 is still a long way away.
phantomshroomNothing is going to change over the next 5 years regardless of how much money they spend on increased production. They could inject $$500 TRILLION into production but unless the industry eradicates 100% of all scalpers/crypto miners world-wide, nothing will change. Consumers will still have a hard time locating decent priced GPUs. A year ago, no issues getting any GPU. Once the crypto scammers raised the prices for its value, GPUs were impossible to obtain at decent MSRP. All this injection of money is going to do is allow the big crypto miners to invest more heavily & deplete stocks. Instead of them buying $30 million worth they would be able to buy several hundred million & further deplete stocks faster.
Grey_BeardNot sure what this does for current supplies, but it seems that the 50 or 60 series chips may get a boost. Unfortunately, the next three years will have supply issues, as I expect this is the “new normal” when it comes to chips in general. Seems the pandemic accelerated something that was bound to happen a few years down the road, as no one was prepared for a spike or surge in demand.
