theres really no immediate shortage......they'd move to new chips simply because like girls, they want the BBD (bigger better deal
yes I know it says this:
Following the lack of availability of TCCD chips
but what I'm saying is the companies have a lot of binned TCCD's and RAM modules still in supply although that samsung itself may have actually stopped producing the TCCD chips.
Like I said, multiple companies were contacted about this and they said there was no sign of them running out any time soon, the main thing is though people were all frantic like "OMG WE GOTTA BUY EM SOON THEY'LL BE GONE!!!" which really isnt/wasnt the case.
But meh, when it boils down to it, it's all gravy because if there's no actual difference and you still get large OC's then it's basically TCCD incognito with a new name
