The Chinese will be producing or selling them recycled for a long time to come :)

We will have to find other chips for projects. As long as there are sources available (vhdl, verilog or equations) we can always use whatever fits. At the most, the time will come to design PCBs for BGA chips. It can be a bit annoying, but it can be done.

That's likely true yes, but I'm sure a lot of people here will tell horror stories of using such chips from China already. Buying used through-hole parts is difficult and time consuming enough to test. Not so simple with SMT devices. I wouldn't ever trust them even if they worked.

I often bought in China used Xilinx chips cheaply. Those were always working :D But yes - you can't trust such sources....
