The great hardware shortage of 2020 and beyond has taken its toll at all levels of the supply chain, but a new dawn could be in the works. An article from TheEdgeMarkets suggest that TSMC—the main chip manufacturer for the majority of top fabless hardware companies—now plans to invest $100bn over the next three years, in order to expand semiconductor manufacturing capacity and new tech research capabilities.

It’s been a drawn-out battle on the hardware front over the past year, with even top companies like AMD and Nvidia being unable to meet the exponential rise in consumer demand during the pandemic. We’ve been watching the industry fight through the GDDR6 supply shortage, exacerbated on the to sidestep the onslaught from cryptocurrency miners, and resellers using bots to buy up this recent generation of GPUs.
