The drama over HDMI hardware isn't ending. One of the very few manufacturers capable of supplying the next stage in making fully HDMI compliant hardware may have a shortage
. Silicon Image (SiL) is potentially facing a shortage, which is the reason that SiL isn't able to supply the market with the chips they need for next-gen video cards. Both nVidia and ATI are set to use these new chips to enable the latent (but existing) HDMI functionality. At the moment, this won't impact hardly anyone – HDMI content isn't readily available. When large-capacity discs and newer digital media come out, though, a lot of people – enthusiasts and casual users alike – might be hit.
