AMD Teases Its 7 nm Vega Instinct Accelerator - Data-Pushing Silicon Deployed

Posted on
AMD has introduced by way of its Twitter feed that the Vega die shrink from present 14 nm down to 7 nm has really coalesced right into a product that may be examined and vetted at their labs. Through a teaser image, the corporate stated that "7nm @RadeonInstinct product for machine studying is working in our labs."

After all, working silicon is barely half the battle - concerns corresponding to yields, leakage, and others are all demons that have to be labored out for precise manufacturing silicon, which can thus be some months off. Solely AMD and TSMC themselves themselves know the way the precise manufacturing run went - and the efficiency and power effectivity that may be anticipated from this design (do not forget that AMD's CEO Lisa SU herself stated they'd companion with each TSMC and Globalfoundries for the 7 nm push, although it appears TSMC could also be pulling forward in that subject). Contemplating AMD's timeline for the die-shrunk Vega to 7 nm - with predicted product launch for 2H 2018 - the truth that there may be working silicon being sampled proper now could be undoubtedly good news.
