Huawei has been cut off from most of the major CPU architectures in existence. If the company can’t negotiate its way out of the problem, what practical recourse does it have?

Google isn’t the only company cutting ties with Huawei. Intel, Qualcomm, Xilinx, and Broadcom are doing so as well, at least for now.

The Intel CPU shortage is expected to begin easing in June, despite continuing into Q3 2019, but the US-China trade war could cause problems for the entire PC industry this year.
