The article doesn't really give an indication why there is a shortage. It is a bit confusing. They state, "Although Qualcomm doesn't make the chips that are affecting the automotive plants, the company works with some of the same chip manufacturers that currently facing backlogs." What the heck does that mean? Are they implying Qualcomm's demand for chips reduced the manufacturer's capacity to make the automotive chips? I would have thought the demand for the automotive chips is fairly constant, so you have to wonder what happened to change the supply causing GM and others to have to reduce their production...

In my industry we have reduced circuit boards being shipped to us down the entire line. From what we've been told enforcing changes in workflow due to covid-19 precautions and reduced employees in some situations due to infection or unspecified issues have reduced production capability across the board. On top of that some companies are offering a higher purchase price as incentive to keep their shipments coming in as much as possible which in turn reduces what other companies will receive from their chip manufacturers but this was a tactic long before covid.

Damn straight.
and while they're at it they should charge a lot less for gpus than they do.
Buy my take, a 3080ti with 24 gddr6 should cost no more than $450 and I should be able to buy one at the local Dollar store.

Yeah, Covid got it the way, quit whining. Smart companies dealt with it rapidly and efficiently with hardly a speed bump of slow down.
Not sure who you are criticizing for whining -- it is possible Covid was the cause for a reduction in the production of the chips. However the article doesn't indicate that...

There is so much fail with tech manufactures not being agile and lacking responsiveness.
