Nope, the original story was that they increased from 6M to 10M. Now this one is saying they increased to as much as 15M which is double what they originally shipped for thePS4 in the same 4month launch window.

Now they are at 11M, which is still3.5Mmore than they did with the PS4 in the same window.

This s the thing with rumors I guess... you only know what is real after whatever it's talking about has happened.



Yields (and, inherently, defect rates) are every's plant best kept secrets.
There is no way to get even close to getting the exact numbers, not Bloomberg, not Donald Trump, maybe not even MS or Sony.

1 million more. 7.5 was shipped to retailers not manufactured I believe.



50% yield is not great but also not uncommon in the industry.

AMD had Zen at about 70% to 80% I believe, which was considered quite high.
Although companies like to keep yields a secret and only boast with them when they are good like the above expample.

I think the biggest issue for Sony is that they can't do anything with damaged wafers.
Its not like CPUs where you sell the imperfect ones as lower spec.
Maybe they have a customer for those imperfect SoCs otherwise it would be quite a waste of money.

The original forecast of 15 Million PS5's produced by March 2021 is absolutely bonkers.



Production =/= shipped to retail, so it looks like theyre now aiming for numbers slightly above PS4

A 50% yield sounds expensive, I wonder why its so low. Is the chip more exotic than they've let on?

So APU yield suddenly got terrible after 6 months? I dunno if I buy that.

Though if SNY now wanted 38 active CU's instead of 36 out of the 40 total, well now you'd have yourself some APU dies that no longer met spec.

Yeilds wouldn't be down now, they'd be down overall only because of an updated spec change.

Has SNY actually been assembling units this whole time, or only more recently? If SNY is lagging on assembly because of this, they might have to use transportation like air freight to make sure they could meet the launch plans.
