There are other reasons for a product to be delayed than yields...
And despite all this, it might just be cheaper for Intel to use a bunch of partically-defective tiles to build out a small volume of HEDT products. No new masks, etc. They're probably burning up a lot of 10ESF/Intel 7 wafers on Sapphire Rapids as it is. Why burn even more on a separate monolithic CPU?
I guess that MCC "24 Core Tile" was prepared for Birch Stream-AP LGA7529, DDR5-16ch, up-to-96cores and zen4-epyc competitor.
But probably now, it replaced by Emerald rapids-AP or Granite.
