Fallout From A 7nm Shortfall At TSMC?

Source: The Inquirer Fallout From A 7nm Shortfall At TSMC?

Blame The Smartphone Market If It Is True

The rumours are that TSMC might be having issues keeping up with demand for their 7nm production line, with the new Apple device and others taking a large chunk of TSMC’s resources.  This might be a bit of a problem for AMD, who rely on TSMC for their Navi and Ryzen chip production and this could mean there could be some sort of shortage of chips in the near future.

The Inquirer reached out to both TSMC and AMD, both of whom declined to comment so you should treat this as a rumour for now.

As a result, AMD is said to be scrambling for production capacity, with TSMC supposedly extending the lead times on the production of 7nm chips from two to six months. That would potentially mean AMD could face chip shortages for its new 7nm products.
