"yields of 5nm for AMD are already over 7nm"

Any reference? TSMC is struggling with yields for 7nm+ due to the relatively few additional EUV steps.

5nm has a significant number of EUV steps and the equipment to do it is only just being installed (in theory - it may need another generation) and EUV will depend on yields AND processing speed as EUV results in a significant drop in wafers per hour due to power requirements for etching resulting in downtime and alignment challenges..
