    Chip shortages not just hitting gaymers

    Everything will cost 20-40% higher soon.

    The global semiconductor crunch is reaching assembly lines for heavy-duty trucks, as the shortfall in chips and other components hits manufacturers trying to fill surging orders from operators of big rigs.

    North American production of Class 8 trucks, the biggest freight-carrying vehicles on highways, “has basically been flat since September in a market where more trucks are needed quickly,” said Don Ake, vice president of commercial vehicles at transportation research firm FTR.

    He said the backlog of orders at truck manufacturers has grown from 89,300 last June, after truckers had pulled back capacity plans in the wake of coronavirus lockdowns, to 205,000 in January, the most recent month for which those figures were available. Fleet operators ordered 44,000 heavy-duty trucks last month, more than triple the number they ordered in February 2020, according to preliminary data from FTR.

    It's hitting the entire auto industry. Assembly plants are facing layoffs due to this.

    *doubt*



    Having worked in the semifab world including at Intel, I don't buy this official story.... That "semi trucks" will cause massive shortages of other chips. Sounds like a cover story to me, like when the entirety of asia was "flooded" which is why it was so hard to find hard drives a decade ago (when in reality, it was because the NSA was buying millions of drives to put into their surveillance system in Utah).


    BRB "we can't make any more Nike tennis shoes because the cattle ranchers need leather boots for the cow pastures!!!" Is how this sounds to me.
    MAGA 2020. I rep patriots, and neg anti-american phaggots.
    Z4 is a frauding phaggot.
