The Asian site MyDrivers reported that TSMC expanded its wafer production capacity to 7nm, and that AMD was the most benefited company, thus becoming TSMC’s largest customer at this node.

Unfortunately, if you expected this news to mean an increase in the stock of Ryzen 5000 processors or Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards, you were wrong; Since it is indicated that AMD will allocate all those additional wafers for the manufacture of silicons that will give life to new PlayStation 5. In this way, the red team will help Sony increase the production and availability of its console.

This also means that we will continue to see the same shortage of Xbox Series X / S consoles, processors, and graphics cards.

In addition, this seems to confirm the news of the enormous amount of sales that Sony is experiencing with the new PS5, and that is that the company has already sold 3.4 million units in its first month, which is crazy.

However, it is important to note that both Microsoft and Sony are selling all the consoles that reach the market, but it is true that the owners of the PlayStation 5 were more astute when reserving a greater amount of silicon for their console, which it translates into more sales.

AMD is now TSMC’s biggest 7nm customer, but it looks like this will only benefit the stock of the PlayStation 5. Will it be enough?
