Not correct, even if China master all technology in the world right now, it would still need to trade for raw resources.
China only has five years of oil left, without imports its economy would collapse.
That fast breeder is at least 20 years away from commercialization and scaling up... minimum... thats not soon enough to save China if the entire world were to cut if off, fusion is much further away
Of course these are extreme examples, Im sure even in absolute worse case some countries would still trade with China but you get the point
China needs to up the infowar game and its pitch to the world should be that US hegemon tax is going to kill the world by constriction and that a strong counterbalancing China is in the best interest of mankind, that China can offer the world a better deal.
Biden already pitching "America is Back" meanwhile Trump says he is presumptive nominee 2024
Its all an elaborate act, the US inflicting 5th Gen infowar on the world
Yea and on that day Taiwan will once again be a proper part of China. It's almost like they're asking for it.the moment US stockpiles enough rare earth it gonna cut China complrtely off and out of all chips
Taipei has been especially quick to respond. Senior U.S. and Taiwanese officials signed a memorandum of understanding in November to promote technological cooperation in seven areas, including semiconductors and fifth-generation wireless, as well as "safe, secure and reliable supply chains."
In his latest comments to the Press not long ago, Liang Mong Song said SMIC will press ahead with N+1 mass production in April, regardless of the sanction. (Got to find the article)@WTAN @Oldschool @foofy and @gelgoog
Thanks very much, How stupid of me not realizing the "S" designation stand for Shanghai @WTAN Seems like your statement about rivalries between Beijing and Shanghai and its affiliated company CETC and SMEE is true. This will accelerate SMIC FAB development as they implement a two way approach. Maximizing its 14nm and 12nm tech (SN1) which is not cover by the sanction while developing a domestic equivalent(Beijing Phase 1), what I'm worried about is their N+1 and N+2 node it will be again delay for the next 2 years
Where will the US sell all those chips? Losing the Chinese market before other markets can be grown means less money for R&D for a debt burden companies and nations.. By then China should have some capabilities in sub 10nm and pretty good production capacity in 14nm. That should be good enough for low to medium end devices.the moment US stockpiles enough rare earth it gonna cut China complrtely off and out of all chips
Could not read the article.
Too little, too late.
It takes time to do all that. Kennedy said that the Americans were going to land on the moon. By the time they did that, he had already perished.
