CPUs and GPUs are going to get even more expensive in 2022

In a move that’s disappointing yet totally unsurprising, TSMC has reportedly infomed its customers that it plans to increase its prices. You know what that means. All of that expensive tech we love is about to get even more expensive. We need that like a hole in the head.

According to DigiTimes, TSMC has informed its largest customers including Nvidia and AMD that it plans to raise the prices of their chips by up to 20%. Of course, this will be passed onto the consumer meaning more expensive CPUs and GPUs. Are we even surprised at this point? It’s not like TSMC is struggling. Its quarterly profit rose 16.4% compared to a year earlier to $6 billion.
