Mass production will happen before Q3 of 2020. They need to stockpile and shift components.
Some fabs will only do about 10,000-40,000 wafers a month... Often less on newer nodes like 7nm. - And each wafer you will get about 250~ chips per 300mm wafer.... And that is only if all the chips are usable.

So it will take time to build up millions of units for the launch window.

Well, considering that neither MS nor Sony will buy chips in small shipments at a time, but in quite big ones, that rumour about AMD ready to deliver Sony the chips in Q3 2020 isn't necessarily wrong, as it could simply mean not that production will start then, but that then they'll be able to regularly ship the quantities Sony needs. 

There would probably be a big shipment in Q3 2020 no doubt.
But the manufacturing part *must* start a long time before then unless they want to run out of units.

I mean the shipping from China to some parts of the world can exceed a month just by itself... Allot goes into building these devices, it's insane once you start looking at the logistics of it all and how they pull it off.
