    I sure hope so!

    I’d much rather keep my 3070 and have Taiwan remain free than get a new card made in occupied territories under terrible conditions.

      You won’t get the latter. The PLA will have dibs on fab capacity for military use, assuming they can stop the west from bricking the lithography machines.

    No shit. Taiwan ist the most important place for chip production besides the companies in Europe that make the Mashines that do it.

      The whole point of the silicone shield policy is that ALL Taiwanese semi-conductor manufacturing will stop if Taiwan is invaded. I don’t know why they specifically call out Nvidia GPUs. It’s not like we will have a lot of time for gaming if WWIII starts.
