Well, with an additional quarter behind it, Nvidia is much more pessimistic when it comes to predicting a return to normality. The US manufacturer expects a shortage of graphics cards throughout most of 2022 .
“I expect that we will see a limited environment for the supply during the vast majority of next year , that is my forecast at the moment,” said the CEO of the company during the presentation of its fiscal results, shared by The Verge. While GPU shortages have been the general trend for the past year and a half, between the pandemic and the cryptocurrency boom, that hasn’t affected Nvidia’s bottom line much.
In fact, the company closed the best second quarter in its history in June , with revenues of $ 6.51 billion (68% more than a year ago). The company recently launched its new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and 3070 Ti to complement its high-end range, and is looking to close an ARM purchase that is taking much longer than anticipated .
