Company TSMC, the world’s largest chipmaker, has changed the schedule of deliveries of finished products to its customers – and not in the direction of acceleration. Despite the high popularity of 7-nm solutions, the largest electronics manufacturers in the future will face a shortage.
The time shipments are made in accordance with 7-nm process, will increase three times. If earlier for the production of large quantities of chips are needed for two months, but now the increased demand for new semiconductor products, led the company to increase the deadlines of up to six months.
We are talking about orders placed after the effective date of the new policy. Last but not least, the changes will affect AMD, which has embarked on the refusal of the domestic production of microchips and sosredotochimsya effort on their design for effective competition with the main competitor – Intel.
Modern AMD enjoy the benefits of the 7-nm technology, but the delay in supply may jeopardize the company’s position in the market of processors and graphics adapters. All the latest CPUs on the architecture of Zen 3 graphics cards based on the architecture involve the use of RDNA technology process N7+. It is expected that in the near future, TSMC will allocate additional funds to expand the most modern manufacturing facilities, accelerating investment in the creation of production lines for the production of chips generations N7+, N6, N5 and N3.
