It doesn't tell you how many they've successfully produced, nor what their definition of an acceptable yield is.

It's wise not pay any attention to anything Sony and friends say until, you can see and touch, feel, smell taste, play, open and see for you're self ect. With Sony the truth is often different from news/hype/repots that come out before the product.

zypher3716d ago

well, you have to believe SOME of it; otherwise you wouldn't be here posting about it. if you believe its a lie then why is it worth commenting about?

Shadow Flare3716d ago

you guys WOULD be abit hesitant to believe something like this, but if a bad rumour against sony popped up, OH! It's gotta be true because blah, blah, blah

TheMART3716d ago

That's fun. Targets at this moment where 10 to 20% with redundancy 20 to 40 %.

So I guess if they're on that targets it's probably 20 to 40%. Better then it was, but still to low. If it really was normal yield of close to 90% they would have said it with hard numbers. Now they don't it tells enough:

Still bad yields. And costs for sh*tty chips have to be paid

achira3716d ago

you have no idea what the actual yield are and what the normal yields are, for sure not 90%.

TheMART3716d ago

So if they're not for sure are close to 90%, what is it then Achira, tell us as you seem to know better!
