Do not consume it, Mr President! Its not that kind of chip!Photo: Pool (Getty Images)President Biden is getting all set to sign an executive order, one that will examine the United States capability to acquire specific things that its presently having difficulty getting hold of. Among the list are semiconductors, one of the primary reasons behind the existing PS5 (and graphics card) shortages.As CNBC reported previously this month, a lack of the chips– triggered by pandemic disturbances to global supply chains– is wreaking havoc across the world, from car makers to hardware business like AMD and Qualcomm, whichs trickling on down to locations like Sony and Nvidia, due to the fact that you cant construct PlayStations and GeForce cards without semiconductors. APs report on the executive order says the evaluation is targeting “the fragility of crucial supply chains”, and will examine whether, if an international situation makes it harder for the United States to import necessary components, the nation needs to be manufacturing those things itself.It need to be noted that this is an order to kick off a review, not to implement anything that it advises. For all we understand the President might get this evaluation, say constructing more stuff in America is an excellent concept, then not do anything about it. Kinda like how he guaranteed $2000 checks and hasnt done that either.
