Snapdragon 8CX yet to ship
Samsung was the first to announce a Snapdragon 8CX design and promised to ship the system this fall, but so far, we haven’t seen any preorders taking place.
Denies rumours it is walking straight to 7nm
Chipzilla has growled at rumours that it is planning to ditch the 10nm production process for its desktop CPUs and was instead set to jump straight from the 14nm+++ lineup into 7nm desktop processors.
Economy of scale
After months of investigation and multiple conversations with several fellow engineers, and super C level executives in multiple organizations, we learned that it costs over one billion dollars to tape out a 7nm chip.
Rumours from the Far East
The dark satanic rumour mill has manufactured a hell on earth yarn that there could be supply problems with AMD’s 7nm processors and graphics cards.
Adaptive intelligent world
Last year was the first time that Xilinx held a massive Xilinx Developers forum, and on October 1 and 2, the company plans the annual event over again. Victor Peng, President, and Chief Executive Officer is expected to give us an update on adaptable intelligent world vision.
2nd gen 7nm, new architecture
Apple’s new iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max come with A13 bionic, the second-generation 7nm process manufactured SoC.
It is all about the 7nm and die-area
Wafers are very expensive, especially for the 7nm leading-edge process, and 10nm is not cheap either. If you need to use a device in a battery-operated environment, then power consumption plays a critical role. But Qualcomm thinks that 5G deployment is happening much faster than was the case with 4G and wants to expand the reach to the Snapdragon 700 and even 600 series.
Global launch in Munich
Huawei Mate 30 will come earlier than most expected. The company has sent out invitations for a global launch on September 19, just slightly more than two weeks from now.

Updated: Will High voltages on AMD's 7nm Ryzen 3000 plague Rome launch?
Today is the day when AMD plans to launch its 7nm datacenter CPU with up to 64 cores, codenamed Rome. As AMD gets ready for it’s most important launch ever today, there is a lot of anticipation and excitement for newfound competition with Intel. Still, well-informed sources are confirming that the Rome default voltages are exceeding TSMC’s 7nm maximum voltage.
