Global chip shortage has long been nothing new, and some auto companies are even facing shutdown due to lack of rice. IBM President Jim Whitehurst said in an interview that the shortage of chips may last another two years, and it will take several years for the situation to improve. What IBM has to do is to find feasible alternatives.
When will the global chip shortage ease? The president of IBM has finally given an exact analysis
When will the global chip shortage ease
"There is a long way to go between developing technology, building factories and producing chips, and it will take several years to increase enough capacity," Hirst said. IBM also has advanced semiconductor technology, which is licensed to Intel, TSMC and Samsung. Hurst believes that in order to meet the needs of consumers, companies must look for alternatives. "
As for the final solution, Hurst believes that "for specific computer technology, we need to consider how to reuse it and extend its life. We also need to speed up investment in chip factories to put more production capacity online as soon as possible." Not long ago, IBM released the world's first 2 nm chip manufacturing technology, but to produce this is not what IBM can do.
