Surprised this took longer to get done tbh. I figured it would have been a month at most to amend the agreement

I'd imagine that there is a lot of legalise to navigate with such an old agreement. This had to happen given GlobalFoundries' 7nm failings, but re-writing an agreement like this takes time.

The WSA will last until 2024, but who knows what AMD has planned for after 2021.

Hard to know. People did start getting suspicious when it was semi-confirmed that both Zen 2 EPYC and 7nm VEGA were both from TSMC.
