The chip shortage could turn into a chip oversupply by 2023, according to analyst firm IDC. That’s perhaps not a fix-all solution for those desperate for new graphics silicon today, but, hey, at least it offers some hope that this isn’t going to last forever, right?
The IDC report (via The Register) notes that it expects the semiconductor industry to see “normalisation and balance by the middle of 2022, with a potential for overcapacity in 2023 as larger scale capacity expansions begin to come online towards the end of 2022.”
Manufacturing capacity is also said to be already maxed out for 2021, meaning every fab is booked up for the remainder of the year. Though it’s reportedly looking a little better for fabless companies (i.e. AMD, Nvidia) to get hold of the chips they need.
