A prediction made by Pat Gelsinger, President and CEO of Intel, who confirms in an interview with CNBC that microchip production should bounce back. to its full potential by the end of 2023. An accurate experience, but a bad sign for console and PC gamers who expected to be able to enjoy a stable situation by the end of 2023 – the end of 2022.
