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.
Well.. they have already looked 60 flights or something like that for air freight lol.
And we don't know if his means yields are "terrible". Just not as good as they want it to be. We have no idea how it s for MS. Besides, this isn't even really a sony problem, well it is being that I impact how many consoles they can bring to market, but its more an AMD problem, as contracts would have been made and sony are not the ones directly paying for the chips.
I just won't put too much stock into this, and the same goes with all rumors. We will know what's what when we hear the price of the console tomorrow and then subsequently when we see how many consoles they have shipped by March 2021.
