Nvidia hosted a special live stream on January 4th to show off some of its newest products with President and CEO Jensen Huang. Nvidia has been one of the many company’s to suffer at the hands of the global chip shortage, which has the ongoing pandemic to blame among other triggers. Unfortunately, there is no end in sight, and the shortage is expected to continue well into 2022. Despite this, Nvidia proudly displayed some of its newest contributions to gaming.
“I think that through the next year, demand is going to far exceed supply, Huang said prior to the event. “We don’t have any magic bullets in navigating the supply chain.”
During the event, we saw products like the 4th Gen Max-Q, GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, and RTX 3070 Ti Laptop GPUs, over 160 new laptops, all built around the RTX 30 Series Laptop GPUs, new reflex games, mice, and displays, new games, devices and networks coming to GeForce Now, the new RTX 3090 Ti, and much, much more.
One thing that was not addressed, however, were issues with bots instantly buying out full stocks of graphics cards once they go live. This is another problem preventing gamers around the world from procuring GPUs. Despite not bringing this up, one hopes the company will soon have plans in place to prevent such practices.
