Though a global chip shortage has made it very hard to purchase an RTX 30-series GPU, that doesn't appear to be stopping NVIDIA. Based on a recent report, it's forging ahead with its RTX 40-series plans for 2022.
The U.S. government requested data from tech giants in the global supply chain of chips to share data earlier this year. Several companies shared information with the government to help battle the global chip shortage.
The U.S. government has given TSMC and other chipmakers 45 days to voluntarily respond with information regarding supply chains. If companies don't meet the request, the U.S. government could try to force compliance.
Many of the biggest names in tech are virtually meeting with the Biden administration today to give updates on the state of the chip shortage. Microsoft, Apple, TSMC, and other major players are said to be attending.
