It's actually insane to try to cut off 1.4 out of 8 billion people from the cutting edge of tech

probably won't work out 😂 maybe we'll see sudden unexpected demand for AMD Ryzens in Indonesia or Thailand that 🙅🏻‍♀️🙅🏻‍♀️nobody 🙅🏻‍♀️🙅🏻‍♀️ saw coming 😂 big big surprise where the demand came from 😂

The BIS statement announcing the export ban made no mention of the countries, but recent events make it clear the target is China – the US has been considering other tech export bans (and investment freezes), recenlylall of which appeared tailored to target China.

Analysts in the Middle Kingdom have claimed the ban would have little short-term impact on China's chipmaking industry as no one in China has yet managed to design chips as advanced as those targeted by the ban.

This is a blatant violation of the First Amendment. This is identical to the usage of ITAR to prohibit publishing gun designs online. Chip manufacturers could sue and they are 100% guaranteed to win the case.

If BIS were to not back down from such a lawsuit and allow export of 3nm tech, they would risk the Supreme Court striking down the laws that created the BIS for being unconstitutional.

First amendment? 😂😂 lmao processors are speech now? By that logic a mechanical gearwheel would be speech as well 😂

BIS has banned the export of certain software (in addition to three materials). Publishing software is unambiguously protected by the First Amendment.
