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.

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 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.

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.
