NVIDIA’s finance manager gave details on stock issues with the RTX 30 series.
Due to the increasing demand for computers and components and supply chains that have been disrupted during the pandemic period, many technology products are difficult to obtain recently. Gamers and PC enthusiasts are at the top of the list.
We have often talked about stock problems with NVIDIA’s new RTX 30 series graphics cards. NVIDIA made some statements in a recent webcast.
The green team said the demand for the new Ampere graphics cards is incredibly high. However, they do not deny supply problems. As you know, these GPUs are produced by Samsung Foundry with 8nm manufacturing technology. Seems like there aren’t enough silicon wafers from Samsung. NVIDIA is also not able to supply enough GPUs to manufacturing partners such as ASUS, MSI or Gigabyte.
NVIDIA CFO Colette Kress said, “We have supply restrictions in terms of Wafer and other components. We continue to work on the procurement process throughout the quarter. We also believe that the demand in the general game market will exceed the supply in the fourth quarter. ” made a statement in the form.
The company’s finance manager did not disclose that the different components were also missing and the restrictions beyond the chips. Long story short, it’s clear that there aren’t enough GeForce RTX 3070s, 3080s and 3090s on the market.
On the other hand, we had received significant leaks about mobile RTX 30 GPUs that will come for laptops. In this context, it is said that delivery times for gaming laptops are also prolonged.
In the semiconductor manufacturing industry, capacities are often pre-booked and it can be difficult to get additional wafers from Samsung Foundry. It is also unknown whether the company has sufficient resources to increase production capacity for NVIDIA.
“We think it will take several months to meet the demand, but it is really hard to measure that time now. Therefore, we continue to focus on the subject, especially for the very important holiday season. The process continues to improve every day. We will be able to provide more information before the quarter is complete. ” says.
