Intel chief warns chip shortage could continue for up to two years
The strong demand environment continues to stress the supply chain across the world.
"While I expect the shortages to bottom out in the second half, it will take another one to two years before the industry is able to completely catch up with demand," Gelsinger said during the Q2 earnings call on Thursday .
Intel laid out its IDM 2.0 strategy in March, moving the company forward toward its goal of delivering leadership products in every category in which it competes.
Intel reported a strong Q2 and raised full-year revenue guidance by $1 billion despite a highly constrained supply environment.
In the second quarter, the company generated $8.7 billion in cash from operations and paid dividends of $1.4 billion.
"Q2 revenue was $18.5 billion exceeding our guidance by $700 million. This upside was led by continued strength in our PC business and earlier-than-expected recovery in both our IoTG business and the enterprise portion of the data center segment," said George Davis, Chief Financial Officer.
Gelsinger said that the ecosystem is back to shipping over one million PC units a day despite grappling with component shortages.

Intel has created the Accelerated Computing Systems in Graphics group led by Raja Koduri to increase the company's focus in key growth areas of high performance computing and graphics.
