I'm guessing manufacturing issue myself, but if we want to talk conspiracies, maybe we should consider a company named after a certain fruit...

This was released many hours ago, and it seems that nobody took notice.
How much of TSMC capacity is on 28nm, again?

Question TSMC 28 nm production status

Any updates on the status of TSMC 28 nm production? Has it resumed? When is it expected to resume?

It probably did a bit ago, but I don't know for sure. I still can't find any details.

Wonder if all this talk of recent days about "28nm constrains" at TSMC isn't just the consequences of the production stop.

Sounds like Charlie was on to something there, but I wonder if we'll ever get the full story...

From the front page, it looks like the timing couldn't have been better for NV (assuming Radeon stock dries up too)

Production stoppage != wafer shortage != yield problems. Three different problems, three different results. There is no common issue between them.

No, AMD supply won't dry up much if at all, they are good.
