Default ATI Radeon 5800 To Remain In Short Supply Until End Of The Year?

IT LOOKS LIKE the wait for more Cypress/HD58xx cards just got a little longer, but not by much. One has to wonder how TSMC can be so bad for so long.

The short story is that the flow of Cypress chips was supposed to uncork on Dec 1, +/- a week or so. ATI just updated AIBs that it is now another week or two on top of that. Instead of Dec 1, think Dec 15. Not the end of the world, but it is still annoying. The blame has to be laid squarely on the feet of TSMC, yields going from good to awful without any changes to the chip are not a design problem, they are a process problem. How TSMC could backslide like that is beyond me.
