AMD unveils the world's first GPU on 7nm at Computex 2018

AMD Demos Beastly 32-Core 2nd Gen Threadripper, 7nm Vega With 32GB HBM2

The Vega microarchitecture released past year in the form of the Vega 56 and Vega 64 not only failed to match inflated expectations, but graphics cards based on the GPUs also fell short of matching - let alone beating - Nvidia's top-of-the-range offerings. We've already seen the mainstream side of things with the Ryzen 2000 Series processors, and now at an event at Computex 2018, AMD has just announced its second-generation Ryzen Threadripper family.

"Although Computex is not a server show, AMD showed off its 7nm-based server EPYC Zen2 CPU which is at AMD labs now and looking "really" good and will sample soon with production in 2019".

Cisco becomes the latest in a long list of server providers to adopt AMD's EPYC processors.

Sampling of Zen 2-based EPYC processors remains on track for the second half of this year. It also makes an appearance in the Vega 10 for intra-device communication.

At the press conference, Huawei didn't disclose any information regarding the release date and pricing for the new AMD Ryzen-based 14-inch MateBook D though. Don't worry, here are the best graphics cards of 2018. Interconnects are increasingly becoming more of a strategic asset as companies transition to heterogeneous computing architectures, and it's a positive sign that AMD's Infinity Fabric continues to pay dividends. TDP will increase to 250W, however AMD announced the CPU can be cooled by a variety of hardware, including the new Cooler Master AMD Ryzen Wraith Ripper air cooler.be quiet! also has a new cooler for Threadripper that is rated for 250W.

Closing out its presentation, AMD revealed the progress of its new Navi 7nm graphics chip in the form of Radeon Instinct, which is of little interest to gamers.

Moving forward, AMD plans to alternate between new graphics architectures and new process nodes. AMD continues to leverage the open source community for its Radeon Open Ecosystem (ROCm) software solutions, which stands in stark contrast to other vendors' proprietary software, like CUDA.
