AMD’s right-hand manufacturer, TSMC, has extended production lead times for its 7nm process by four months due to tight supply. The pure-play foundry is seeing a boom in trade for its latest volume node – the same one the latest Ryzen and Radeon chips are built upon for the most part – to such an extent that its been forced to extend wait times from two months to nearly six. We all knew the day would come when TSMC would reach capacity. Despite managing to stave off the threat early on for 7nm production with some heavy investment in the profitable node, growing utilisation by the tech industry has unsurprisingly led to a tight supply of chips out of the Taiwanese chip manufacturing powerhouse. According to industry sources close to the matter speaking with DigiTimes, the booming 7nm node business has led to a lead time increase of roughly four months due to tight supply at the foundry – meaning TSMC’s partners will have to get their orders in sooner rather than later to ensure a steady supply of chips over the coming months. And that could have ramifications, whether direct or indirectly, for AMD.
