Elon Musk predicted when there will be enough microcircuits for everyone

Published

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said this week that the ongoing semiconductor industry crisis will end next year. Musk believes the chip shortage is a short-term problem, not a long-term one.

Now many factories for the production of microcircuits are being built. I think that by next year, the production capacity for the production of microcircuits will be significantly increased.

Musk did not specify which microcircuit factories are being built. Although Intel and TSMC have announced plans to build new factories in the US, they are expected to be operational in only a few years. Glenn O’Donnell, vice president of consulting firm Forrester, believes the chip shortage could persist until 2023. O’Donnell said in April this year: “Due to high demand, supply will continue to be limited. We expect this deficit to continue until 2023. ”

The global shortage of microcircuits has severely affected many industries, especially the automotive industry. Renowned automakers such as Ford, Volkswagen and Daimler were forced to partially halt production due to lack of chips and lower production targets.

Tesla is no exception. Musk confirmed that in the first quarter, the company faced its most challenging component shortage. Moreover, the situation did not change in the second and third quarters.

Are Huawei flagships disappearing from the global market The company

A couple of weeks ago, Huawei removed the Leica logo from its P50 smartphones as Leica is now partnering with Xiaomi. Now it is reported that Huawei has completely removed the P50 smartphones from the range of global models.

Are Huawei flagships disappearing from the global market?  The company has removed P50 smartphones from the range of global models, but not everywhere yet

However, the situation is not yet completely clear. Initially, the information was shared by a German thematic resource, and then it was repeated by many others. But the fact is that all models of the P50 line really disappeared from the German Huawei website, however, they are on the Huawei websites of some other European regions.

There are no official comments from Huawei itself, and therefore it is impossible to form a final picture. Perhaps Huawei has begun the process of withdrawing flagship devices from the global market, but it’s just that the changes have not yet been introduced on all regional sites.

Mitsuoka Buddy is offered in two versions to choose from. Buyers are available a pure gasoline version with a 2.0-liter engine and a hybrid with a 2.5-liter gasoline engine and an electric motor.

Production of the “aged” Toyota RAV4 began in June last year. The car differs from the Toyota crossover in its original body design. The front fenders, hood and bumper are made in the style of the Chevrolet K5 Blazer of the 1970-1980s. The headlights from the RAV4 were replaced with universal “rectangles”, the radiator grille is made in the form of a nickel-plated “grill”, and the original bumper with a chrome trim and vertical lights from Cadillac integrated through the adapter is installed at the back.

Gordon Freeman has become the hero of a new game

Developer PinkyDev has revealed that the game, codenamed Codename: Loop, which is a spin-off of the Half-Life shooter, has received permission from Valve to be placed on Steam in the near future.

The main protagonist of Codename: Loop is the protagonist of the Half-Life series, Gordon Freeman. The project will combine an isometric shooter and roguelike elements. The project is expected to be released this year.

An important point of Codename: Loop is its compatibility with the original Half-Life BSP file format. This allows Codename: Loop to take advantage of the GoldSrc engine while maintaining the look and feel of Half-Life in the Unity engine. Codename: Loop also features third-person views and a classic first-person view for fans who want to create FPS-style levels. BSP compatibility enhances the potential of Codename: Loop to support the modding community, as level designers can use existing tools to create maps and campaigns in Codename: Loop.

Keeping the classic spirit of Half-Life alive is a top priority for PinkyDev, who wrote in the project’s latest update: “I will do my best to support the Steam Workshop so everyone can share campaigns and levels and support this game forever.”
