    Yeah, that seems to be referring to some kind of workstation card, so I'm guessing that means consumer gaming GPUs will be out sometime in (early) 2019.

    Vega Radeon Instinct 7nm is an AI oriented GPU...

    I was under the impression the consumer gaming GPU's (based on Navi 7nm) will be out by mid 2019.
    Unless this new schedule accelerated things.

    Zen 2 is likely to ship in the first quarter of 2019 though... not sure about GPU's.

    Yeah, AMD is leaking like a sieve. Yet another of their major employes does not seem to work with Lisa Su.

    Exclusive: AMD Senior Vice President Jim Anderson Resigns – Moving On To Become CEO-Wccftech.com
    I have just heard something pretty massive: Jim Anderson, AMD’s Senior Vice President and General Manager has resigned and AMD should be announcing this fact very very soon. The reasons surrounding the sudden departure are unknown but I have heard it had something to do with “tensions” related to Lisa Su.


    AMD loses another key executive, Jim Anderson, as it shifts manufacturing to TSMC-Pcworld.com
    AMD said Monday that it lost a key executive in its processor group, Jim Anderson, and that it would migrate its leading-edge manufacturing to TSMC.

    AMD Is All In On 7nm CPUs For Strategic Advantage On Intel’s 10nm Stumble-Hothardware.com
    "In the CPU space, AMD is firing on all cylinders currently, having reasserted itself into the performance sector with its mainstream Ryzen processors and high-end desktop (HEDT) Threadripper chips. Both are now in their second generation.

    While it may sound like a gamble for AMD to put all of its eggs into a 7nm basket, it might be more out of necessity than choice. Intel contents that its 10nm process is more advanced than the competition, as it is packing more transistors and is doing a better job with scaling. In fact, Intel has even stated a desire to introduce a new metric to more accurately reflect where chip design technologies are really at...

    GlobalFoundries Puts its 7 nm Program on Hold Indefinitely
    Techpowerup.com Tuesday, August 28th 2018 00:42

    GLOBALFOUNDRIES today announced an important step in its transformation, continuing the trajectory launched with the appointment of Tom Caulfield as CEO earlier this year. In line with the strategic direction Caulfield has articulated, GF is reshaping its technology portfolio to intensify its focus on delivering truly differentiated offerings for clients in high-growth markets.


    "Lifting the burden of investing at the leading edge will allow GF to make more targeted investments in technologies that really matter to the majority of chip designers in fast-growing markets such as RF, IoT, 5G, industrial and automotive," said Samuel Wang, research vice president at Gartner. "While the leading edge gets most of the headlines, fewer customers can afford the transition to 7nm and finer geometries. 14nm and above technologies will continue to be the important demand driver for the foundry business for many years to come. There is significant room for innovation on these nodes to fuel the next wave of technology."

    Wow, that sounds like Intel (or?) could have bought a "significant" portion of production for 14nm and by that gesture bought themselves space in the queue for future 7nm production. Too late now? Or is GF drawing the line that invites Intel in?

    Intel, by offering to help fund the 7nm gen 2 and 7nm gen 3 work, perhaps with collaboration from their successful portions of 10nm fab, could be a good partnership with GF.

    If Intel continue on 14nm++++ or whatever they will call the next and same time beat AMD clock for clock, have higher clocks speed + overclock a lot higher exactly the same as today... Just let them continue with whatever they want:vbbiggrin:

    Yeah, that's the same poor thinking and planning that got Intel into the jam they are in now. :)

    Hopefully there is enough TSMC 7nm production for AMD - and everyone else that was scheduled for GF 7nm production - to release on time, or early as it seems AMD was(is?) on track to do sooner than originally planned.

    GlobalFoundries Stops All 7nm Development: Opts To Focus on Specialized Processeses
    https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/9asamn/globalfoundries_stops_all_7nm_development_opts_to/

    "...Keep in mind that AMD’s first 7 nm product was designed for TSMC’s CLN7FF from the beginning, so the company did not bet on GF’s 7LP in late 2018 anyway, and no rush with the manufacturing technology was needed for GF’s key customer."

    "...Meanwhile, having spent well over $20 billion on GlobalFoundries over the last 10 years, Mubadala, the owner of the company, is not inclined to lose more money or invest tens of billions in the hopes of becoming profitable one day. The investor wants GlobalFoundries to stop bleeding and start generating profits."

    AMD accelerates 7nm process adoption
    https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/9ao94r/amd_accelerates_7nm_process_adoption/

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

    AMD had originally planned to release the first 7nm Vega GPU in 2019 but, thanks to "immense focus" has been able to move the date forward to later this year. Thus we will see the next-generation Radeon Vega Instinct GPU, demonstrated at Computex with 32GB HBM2, launched before the year is out."

    I hope there is enough 7nm Capacity for both AMD processors and graphics. Or maybe I talk too much... Of course it's enough for botht.... Less sales due Intel and Nvidia will help them out of the mess. One of those two scenarios will probably fit:biggrin: Yeah, I'm clever regarding backup, LOOL
