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.
