Vega 7nm GPU with 60 CUs, coming Feb. 7th for $699
At its CES 2019 keynote, AMD's CEO, Dr. Lisa Su, unveiled AMD's first 7nm gaming GPU, the Radeon VII (seven).
Both TSMC don’t worry about GloFo
The news that GlobalFoundries is walking away from 7nm manufacturing brought a lot of uncertainty to AMD’s roadmap and Mark Papermaster the CTO of the company has just posted a blog comforting investors and assuring customers that both CPU and GPU designs at 7nm are in safe hands at TSMC.
Vega 64 real replacement
As Fudzilla reported a few times, Navi 10, the small Navi, manufactured on 7nm, is set to arrive at some point in 2019. There will be a big gaming GPU called Navi 20, but this one won’t come until 2020.
RayTrace render demo
None other than Lisa Su, the fearless leader of AMD, has announced the Vega 7nm and just as Fudzilla reported a few months back this is a Radeon instinct only and it won’t make it to a gaming part. David Wang the SVP Engineering Radeon Technologies Group went into a few more details.
2020 at the earliest
What Taiwan native David Wang - VP of AMD's Radeon Technologies Group - wanted to share the world at Computex is that Vega 14nm was a new architecture while Vega 7nm is a die shrink. Just think of it like Intel’s tick–tock cycle that got broken at 14nm a few years back.
That is the Vega 7nm
Many of our colleagues were excited to see the confirmation of the existence of the chip called Vega 20. This is what AMD introduced back in January as the Vega 7nm, and it is a compute chip.
Sample in 2018, shipping unknown
If there is one difference between journalists to financial investors about the Vega 7 nm there is a very different view. Now, Lisa Su, the CEO of AMD has confirmed that 7nm can be used for artificial intelligence and that it will sample in 2018.
Instinct, artificial intelligence first
Lisa Su has announced Vega 7nm as a machine learning "instinct part" first. AMD is quite clear that this is for machine learning first and don’t want to comment on our curiosity whether Vega 7nm can make it to the market as a gaming product soon.
Without pointing any fingers and naming any names, Fudzilla had confirmation that Raja Koduri's successor to run the graphics side of the business will come from outside of AMD.
