Chip shortage nightmare could last for years, warns IBM IBM

IBM is joining the ranks of Intel and TSMC in their pessimistic outlook for a quick end to the global semiconductor shortage, putting the end of the silicon supply crunch sometime in late 2022/early 2023, at the very earliest.

In case you aren’t aware, there’s a bit of a drought in semiconductors, the silicon-based chips that power everything from the best graphics cards and the new iMac to cars, medical equipment, and mobile phones – heck, even wired landlines have microcontrollers in them that are going to be impacted.
