So, what is the actual yield rate? anybody?

The real issue at TSMC may remain a mystery but it that doesn't change the fact that Qualcomm, nVidia and others are looking at second sources. True or not that potentially hurts market share.

I would agree with Mr. Nenni 100% on that. I checked with several sources and found that it was highly unlikely that TSMC shut down 28-nm production. I reported this in the EE Times Forum, also in March: http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4237431/AMD-relinquishes-stake-in-Globalfoundries The point of mentioning this rumor in the story was to support the statement that TSMC has been dogged by rumors about it's 28-nm process.

Mr. Nenni of SemiWiki has been saying since March that the 28nm rumors about TSMC shutting down production were false, http://www.semiwiki.com/forum/content/1091-tsmc-absolutely-did-not-halt-28nm-production.html

I missed the news then. I did not even know TSMC was having an issue at 28nm. I just assumed they have the market share to expand to any capacity they want.

In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
