2019 Brings New AMD 7nm CPUs, GPUs

We now know a lot more about AMD's 7-nanometer product roadmap this year, thanks to the chipmaker's recent announcements at Computex in Taiwan.

The 7nm product roadmap refers to CPUs and GPUs made by AMD that use a next-generation manufacturing process that increases the density of transistors on processors, allowing for improvements in both performance and energy efficiency. Currently, most of the company's processors are based on either a 12nm or 14nm manufacturing process.

After years of research and development and work with external foundries, AMD is finally on the runway for its first major 7nm releases. AMD CTO Mark Papermaster told CRN last year that the company's "immense focus" has allowed it to not only stay on schedule but move even faster.

"We knew 7nm would be a big challenge, so we made the bet, we shifted our resources onto the new node," he said. "We didn't just dip our toe in the water. We went all in."

The Santa Clara, Calif.-based company has already released its 7nm Radeon Instinct GPU for data centers and its high-end 7nm Radeon VII GPU for desktops. Now it's only months away from releasing new 7nm Ryzen CPUs for desktop, new 7nm Radeon RX GPUs for desktop and new 7nm EPYC CPUs for servers. What follows is a roundup of the most important details of AMD's 7nm roadmap in 2019.
