TSMC is on track to reaping impressive gains in 2020, as signficant orders from Apple will make sure the foundry house's 5nm process capacity will be fully occupied through the end of the year. And for its 7nm process, yield rates have been stable.

Backend houses have also confirmed that their processing of PS5 SoCs has been proceeding without any issues.
