@peter.clarke: some heads roll at GF so it is natural every one wants to know the inside scoop. Daniel Nenni had the guessing game (TSMC's yield at 28nm) for a while on Semiconductor Professionals @LinkedIn. I don't remember the final consensus (correlated?) yield figure but it was no where north of 90%. According to this other post also by Nenni, it would seem quite difficult to get yields above 80% as one goes to 32/28nm nodes: http://dnenni.wordpress.com/2009/09/20/tsmc-restrictive-design-rules-and-3228nm-yield/ In addition to the continuing statistical effects, it appears proximity and stress effects are more pronounced as the nodes are shrunk.

What I have got, you have got. If anyone else is able to share yield numbers, it would be interesting!!!!
