Influenced by the ethos of mining, the graphics card market has stood still for some time. After the release of the new RTX 20 series in August, NVIDIA finally brought a new look. How will the opponent fight AMD? At this year's Computex 2018 conference, AMD has announced that it will build a new Radeon graphics card in the 7nm process and has officially confirmed that it will be launched in 2018 when it is accepted.
AMD presented the 7nm GPU chip at the Computex 2018 conference in June, when AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su said the 7nm product has started sampling and will be available later this year. The new 7nm process is the first to introduce an improved version of the Vega architecture last year. The new GPU supports internal AI commands and has four HBM2 8GB memory stacks that can carry 4096-bit memory and a total of 32 GB to supply vRAM.
AMD CEO Dr. ir. Lisa Su confirmed in an interview with Marketwatch that AMD is expected to launch the first 7nm graphics card in the world this year. Dr. Lisa Su said: "The next major milestone of AMD is the launch of the next 7nm product portfolio, including adoption, with the first product of the second generation" Zen 2 "CPU core and the new" Navi "GPU architecture also using of the 7nm process technology of TSMC, including the first 7nm GPU scheduled for launch later this year and we are planning to start in 2019. Introduced the first 7nm server CPU. "
Although AMD has not disclosed detailed specifications regarding new GPUs, it is expected to provide approximately 1TB / s of memory bandwidth with higher clock speed and higher energy efficiency with TSMC's leading 7nm process technology. According to relevant sources AMD will bring an incredible 20.9 TFLOPS graphical representation of 7nm Vega, and if so, it will be the first GPU in the world with 20 TFLOPS. As far as the die size of the GPU is concerned, Anandtech estimates that it is approximately 336 mm2, which is 25% more than NVIDIA & # 39; s 754 mm2, the most powerful Turing GPU available today.
Although Dr. Lisa Su confirmed that the 7nm GPU graphics card product could be completed this year, she did not provide any other details, so it was not certain that the 7nm Vega was the first to enter the gaming market.
In addition to the 7nm technology used in graphics card products, AMD has also actively developed 7nm EPYC server chips, which will renew 7nm Ryzen processor after completion, so the next generation Zen 2 x86 64-bit kernel 7nm CPU is expected to years appear on the fair, I believe it will put a lot of pressure on rival Intel.
