Korean carmaker Hyundai is understood to be an exception, but the shortage is expanding from system chips used in cars... now to memory chips.
Market researchers at TrendForce expect the price of server DRAM to rise as much as 40 percent this year, and for demand to outstrip supply for for as long as 300 days, stretching into the third quarter of this year or beyond.
