NVIDIA foresees GPU shortages throughout 2022

If you're hoping shortages of GPUs will quickly fade away, NVIDIA's fiscal Q2 2022 had some bad news for you. In response to a question from a financial analyst, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang commented that he doesn't expect the supply-constrained situation to be resolved anytime soon. In fact, Huang believes NVIDIA will be limited by supply throughout most of 2022.
We have enough supply to meet our second-half company growth plans and next year, we expect to be able to achieve our company's growth plans for next year.

Meanwhile, we're happening, and so I think the -- I would expect that we will see a supply-constrained environment for the vast majority of next year is my guess at the moment.

But a lot of that has to do with the part of our demand is just too great. RTX is really a once-in-a-generation reset of computer model considered graphics. Nothing like this has happened as, and since the invention is really pipe groundbreaking, and you could see its impact. -- NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang
The good news is that the worst shortages seem to be behind us. Street prices peaked last quarter, they're still a lot higher than the official MSRPs, but no longer as extreme as in April/May.

In the short-term, there may be a refresh of the RTX 30 series. Next year we'll see NVIDIA's next-generation GPUs. Depending on who you listen to, this series will either be based on the 5nm Ada Lovelace or Hopper.
