Obviously, 7nm is still focused on development by AMD, after all, the benefits it brings are still very objective, and downstream customer demand is also very strong.
According to the reports, TSMC has expanded its 7nm production capacity, while AMD has obtained more quotas, mainly for the production of PS5 processors.
Industry chain sources revealed that AMD, which supplies processors for Sony’s PS5, has obtained more 7nm process capacity support from TSMC, in order to supply Sony with more processors required for PS5 and support them to increase production and increase inventory.
After obtaining TSMC’s more 7nm process capacity support, the number of processors required for Sony’s PS5 will depend on the supply of ABF carrier boards it needs.
Previous news also showed that AMD will become TSMC’s largest customer of 7nm next year. The current situation is that Apple and Huawei have shifted their production capacity to 5nm, TSMC’s 7nm production capacity has released a lot, and AMD is constantly increasing orders.
For consumers, the shortage of Ryzen 5000 series processors next year is expected to be completely relieved with the huge increase in 7nm production capacity. Popular CPUs such as Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 9 5900X are better to buy.
