The latest news is that the big chip manufacturers are going to continue soaking us for more money. Yes, they are predicting at least a year before the prices on chips will come down. That means that pricing on computers will be going back up, and that will even ripple through on other tech. Their profits will also be increasing, as you might imagine, as they reap the rewards of a limited supply and an increased demand. If you want to get something that is rich on the chip side, like a high end video card, you better move quickly.
The leaders of the tech world say it’ll be almost a year (at the very least) before we see relief from the current supply crunch.
