CPU != Chips
When you can run your PC on a CPU without using other chips altogether let me know, that's pretty news worthy. I think the automotive industry is also very keen to hear of your invention.
And no its not just a GPU either, the world is bigger than mining/crypto/gaming and even if you include datacenters you're not even scratching the surface of the entire chip industry. The fact is, the GPU market is small enough to see that availability is already improving even now as the peak of current gen has passed and demand is already cooling down for it. Its extremely elastic, while many other chip markets are non-elastic: they are prerequisites for thousands of branches and product lines.
To verify that statement, just look at (y)our own situation as tech heads. GPUs can last upwards of five years and still do a job fine. Companies however that need to release a circuit board of whatever kind have a new product to push, requiring new chips of all sorts. And the trend has been that almost everything, including a toothbrush, refrigerator and even doorbell could have a little chip inside.
