The main manufacturer of AMD, TSMC, extended the delivery times of its production of 7 nanometers in four months due to lack of supplies. The manufacturer saw a large increase in orders for its new 7nm process, the same used by the new Ryzen and Radeon chips, which tripled the waiting times, going from two to almost six months.
Everyone knew that one day TSMC would fill its production capacity. Although they tried to avoid it with a large investment in their new node, the increased use by the industry led to a collapse in chip delivery by the Taiwanese manufacturer.
According to industry sources, the increase in the use of the 7nm node led to an extra four months of waiting due to a lack of supplies at the factory, so TSMC partners must submit their requests beforehand in order to maintain a constant supply of chips for the next months.
The extended timeout of TSMC will surely affect companies that are now switching to the 7nm node, or that want to increase their capacity. So the Ryzen 3000 processors and the AMD Navi GPUs that use the 7nm of TSMC will surely keep a constant stock thanks to their contracts.
What do you think of these possible delays for AMD?
