According to our sources, the yields of Zen 2 are enhancing quickly. Three months ago we wrote that Zen 2 yields (100% fully working chip) were about 70%. Today, yields are about 85%!

Zen 2 yields are still a little bit lower than Zeppelin ones (Today at +90%), but at this rate Zen 2 will be inexpensive to produce. TSMC 7nm yields are near 16nm yields (Source), and 7nm wafer cost is now under 10k Dollar (IBS Research).

Two years ago we wrote about the crazy high yields of Zeppelin dies but, now, we are here to talk about the yelds of Zen2 dies (About 88 mm2). According to our sources, the same who told us about the death of Global Foundries 20nm, the fully working Zen2 dies are about the 70% of the total production (A separate discourse needs to be entered into for the frequencies).

Despite it doesn't sound great at first sight, that's a very good news. If we think that a fully working Intel XCC die (28 cores) has a rumored yield of 35%, this means that a 64C EPYC2 CPU has got a yield rate of 70% (8 x 8 dies). Almost the double of Intel yield rate!

So, we are curious to know EPYC 2 (And Ryzen 3000) prices.

According to our sources, ATIC (Which owns about nine-tens of Globalfoundries) is in the process of looking for potential buyers for GlobalFoundries.

It’s not the first time we hear this rumor, but this time there will not be another IBM, ready to donate 1.5 billion dollars and the foundry business almost for free.

Recently GlobalFoundries has deleted the 7nm node, in order to bet on 14nm/12nm FinFET and FD-SOI nodes. As Daniel Nenni wrote, “GF will skip 7nm and below and join the ranks of UMC, SMIC, TowerJazz etc… as a boutique foundry which can be quite profitable. In fact, with CMOS, FinFET, and the FD-SOI offerings, I would crown GF the King of the Foundry Boutiques!”.

Yes, it’s a huge market, but will it be sustainable in the long run? Who know?

For this reason ATIC is looking for potential buyers. They now understand that the foundry business is not just a game where the guy who has more money wins (Intel anyone?).

So, before GlobalFoundries value sinks, they’re traying to sell it: “Take the Money and Run”.
