You won’t hear politicians crow about spending billions of dollars (or euros) to lure a factory that makes “old” chips. But that’s the reality, and it’s a perfectly acceptable one because these are the very components the world needs most. Of course Apple, Nvidia, Qualcomm and AMD will be eager to announce their made-in-the-US chips, but the actual supply will be meager and tokenistic.
