We have been sitting on this piece of information for a while, but maybe it's the right time to share it with you. Navi 7nm the 2019 chip will not be a high end GPU, it will be a quite powerful performance/mainstream chip.
Current plan: will never be
Many AMD fanboys hoped that Vega 7 nm would be a GPU that could make Vega more competitive to Nvidia's offering.
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.
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.
Listed as the GFX10 architecture
A reference for AMD's upcoming Navi GPU has been spotted in latest Linux drivers.
10nm Intel part
Kaby Lake G might not be the only flirtation between Intel and AMD (RTG), there are some future parts in the pipeline, too.
Let’s downgrade them when making money
AMD took a bit hit after Morgan Stanley’s Joseph Moore thought he'd figured out AMD, and he doesn’t see rosy things for the company.
7nm next gen Radeon
All eyes are on the Vega that is supposed to launch early next week, but we would not be Fudzilla unless we were able to get something about the next one down the line.
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.
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.
