Four cores with eight threads
A few of you might remember that we exclusively posted the news that AMD is working on a 7nm CPU codenamed Starship. The 7nm APU is codenamed Gray Hawk and it aims to attain lower TDPs.
Next, next generation
Vega 10 will evolve to Vega 20 in 2017 and 2018 and this will be AMD’s next big thing. It is codenamed Navi and will be a 7nm FinFET GlobalFoundries product that should surface in late 2018 or early 2019.
Go directly to 7nm do not past 10nm or collect $200
Globalfoundries has announced it is ignoring 10nm and will go directly to the 7nm FinFET chip production by early 2018.
Significantly higher costs to develop smaller chip packages
According to senior officials at TSMC during the Semicon expo in Taiwan this week, the chip fabrication giant is on track to begin volume production on its 7nm process node in Q1 2018.
Changes in job adverts
Intel may have delayed the arrival of its 7 nm processing technology until 2022.
While Vega sticks with 14nm
A little birdie told us that Nvidia is giving its Volta the 16nm FinFET treatment. This product uses stacked DRAM too so it looks like the whole thing will be pretty bleeding edge.
Exclusive: Codename Starship
Fudzilla warned you that AMD's 32core / 64 tread X86 processor codenamed Naples is coming in 2017 to a server near you, but it looks like AMD has a 7nm product called Starship which will arrive soon afterwards.
Low power high performance chips
ARM has teamed up with TSMC to develop a 7nm process technology to produce low-power, high-performance chips for next-generation networks and data centres.
Two years after 7nm
Foundry TSMC claims it will be ready to roll out its 5nm process technology two years after the launch of its 7nm node..
