Speaking of AMD Ryzen, the upcoming AMD Zen 5 will be based on 3nm process as GlobalFoundries plans to skip the 5 nm altogether.
According to Caulfield, he doesn’t think that 5 nm is going to be enough for the company to invest in it and 3 nm process will be required to get “full performance”. However, he didn’t confirm that the company will indeed skip the 5 nm in favor of 3 nm process.
I don’t know if 5 nm is enough to make a fabless company invest … they need something as defined as 3 nm to get full performance, but we’re still looking at what is the right investment for the next node.
Not only that, AMD has also confirmed 7nm+ Zen CPUs and “next-gen” GPUs for 2020. During a recent brief, AMD showcased slides detailing the roadmap for its upcoming products.
According to AMD, 7nm Zen 2 is complete and it improves over Zen architecture in “multiple dimensions” which might indicate that 7nm Zen 2 will be available in 2019 as the slide states that Zen 3 will be out in 2020.
