According to Notebookcheck TSMC will produce 115.000 wafers for AMD in the second half of 2020, each wafer yields a little over 100 APUs but at current 58% rates this will round up to about 7 million viable chips.

Notebookcheck is generally regarded as a reputable site.

Shouldn't mark as "news" and word factually something sourced from a Taiwanese website's anonymous sources. This is a sketchy rumor at best.

So the rumors about the terrible yields are true after all? I wonder why they are so low?

new designs and manufacturing are always lower yield at the start. Add covid and a bunch of new tech all coming out at the same time it makes a lot of sense that there is a smaller production of consoles.
