TECH NEWS – AMD, led by Lisa Su, has previously predicted that the parts shortage would ease around this time.
AMD’s news is particularly encouraging given the unprecedented crisis the tech sector has experienced in recent months. Shortages of materials, manufacturing problems and other logistical complications have led some companies to resort to the most unlikely methods to obtain chips. But it looks like we may soon be able to put this turbulent period behind us.
“From an AMD standpoint, we have dramatically increased our overall capacity” – Lisa Su
That’s what the company’s CEO Lisa Su said at the launch of the Ryzen 7000 processor family. In fact, during the Q&A session, the audience couldn’t help but express their fears about the launch hitting the current parts crisis. Nevertheless, the CEO took the opportunity to share some very optimistic predictions about AMD in an interview with PC Gamer.
“It is true that if you look at the past 18 months there have been a number of things, whether its capacity limitations or logistics,” Su begins. “From an AMD standpoint, we have dramatically increased our overall capacity, in terms of wafers, as well as substrates and on the back end.”
“With our launch of Zen 4 we don’t expect any supply constraints.”
Couple all this with the current chip flow, and we can reasonably hope for an end to component shortages, which could ease the production of both computer hardware and next-generation consoles. If you’re curious about the company’s new CPU offering, which will be released on 27 September, we encourage you to watch the presentation in full.
