Vega to use 14nm and 14nm+
During its 2017 Financial Analyst Day, AMD revealed a bit more information about its future GPU plans. The next Navi GPU will be based on a 7nm manufacturing process.
10nm Cannon lake and price drops are the answer
AMD had a big day with its Ryzen launch which is the most important for AMD for years. Many didn’t believe it would even happen, but AMD has a product that competes with Intel’s fastest chips. Now, one might wonder what Intel is planning to counter it and we have a few ideas.
IBM purchase cleared the way
GlobalFoundry’s CTO has said that the industry needs 7nm and its recent IBM purchase is helping him build up a new cunning plan for the technology.
Chinese government says no
The Chinese government has stepped in to put a Globalfoundries joint venture 12-inch fab project on ice.
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.
Polaris 10, available June 29th
Ahead of its evening keynote at Computex 2016, AMD graphics chief Raja Koduri has just introduced what we used to call "Polaris". The company has decided on branding its tenth-generation graphics lineup the Radeon RX 400 Series, beginning first with the Radeon RX 480.
GlobalFoundries tech helps sort out spectrum mess
DARPA is crediting Glo-Flo's 32 nm silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology for providing the breakthrough it needed to sort out the mess over scarce electromagnetic (EM) spectrum.
Sooner than expected
While AMD recently announced its fourth generation GCN architecture, known as Polaris, at the CES 2016, it was keeping quiet on a launch date.
