AMD confirms: Video cards in the 14 nm way

A new report claims that Will not produce Graphics in 20 nm lithography - but skip straight to the processors In an attempt to provide itself with a competitive advantage vis-a-vis the competitor

The difficulties in creating 20 nanometer chips based on planar transistors have been known for a long time, and rumors of changes in AMD's plans to bring new Rx 300 processors to the market this year. The exact source is not clear, but online reports now say that what has become a rumor has become a fait accompli, and that AMD will jump from its current 28 nanometer processors directly to 14 nanometers, Transistors in a more complex 3D structure.

AMD's 14 nanometer processors will arrive next year as part of the Radeon Rx 400 series, codenamed Arctic Islands. Once that happens, the company will join a prestigious club, which is now only owned by Intel, with the 14 series nm processors Broadwell Its, and Samsung, with processors Exynos 7420 Which are at the heart of its Galaxy S6 phones. Nvidia is expected to launch the GeForce 1000 processors, which are not yet known to be based on 16 or 14 nanometer technology. Minimizing these scales helps better energy utilization and therefore gradually closes the gap between the power of mobile processors and landfills, but has less impact on achieving new performance peaks in an environment where low power envelope is less critical, such as desktop. Upgrading the performance of graphics cards 2016 generation will come mostly from other locations, such as The HBM memory Which has low energy consumption and a larger bandwidth than DDR4 / GDDR5, And in the " Of 2016.


And what about the Radeon Rx 300 series cards, which are expected to take the place of the Rx 200 later this year? Most of them are modest upgrades to 2014 cards, but the strongest ones, the R9 390 / 390x / 390 × 2, were expected to be based on high-speed HBM memory and 20 nm lithography. If the argument about skipping the 20 Nano technology is correct, so too will the top end of the processors This year will remain based on the 28 nanometer processes. It is unclear whether this will affect the performance planned for R9 390 and its more powerful brothers.

A chip manufacturing line of GlobalFoundries, one of the few places currently offered for 14nm lithography. the mother Will produce its new processors here or in Samsung's factories?

  1. All year they talked about the 300 series that comes out of Otuto at 20 nm and now that too will dissolve?
    AMD rolls down the slope for lack of truth NVIDIA simply steps one step further

    Poor if they were out with 20 nm then Noydia would have been out with 14 a month after
    Now AMD are obliged to give up the whole idea of ​​going early to market and just decided to align a line on the 14 nm and probably get out of the same time frame with Noydia's tickets

    Only for two months now, and probably even ahead, they have no product comparable to its mobile phones

  2. Waiting for 2016 is a retarded method they will now take out not waiting for 2016 for those who have bigger ones

  3. Why wait for 2020? Take out video cards at 2.5 nm now!
    The product is not ready yet, patience.

  4. To a djelectric who told you it's not ready, you don't realize they use a successful method every time they turn down to make money from the same technology.

  5. They use the "it's not ready" method. In this method, the chip factory monitors them for lack of maturity in the manufacturing process, which results in low results in the number of active cores per woofer. They are likely to go into mass production only in the final quarter of this year.

  6. The production process at 20nm was a failure, a high percentage of defects and severe problems with large chips (at TSMC), which is why NVIDIA and AMD stayed with 28nm. Currently 14nm is available (with globalfoundries that AMD manufactures the processors and may also have the new graphics cards) but it seems as if the process is currently not sufficiently mature and fits only to small chips like cellular components.
    AMD has moved the production to GF and 28nm should be better than TSMC so AMD can still make a small surprise. If they talk about 14nm they probably don't plan to go back to TSMC (because they move to 16nm rather than 14nm). There were rumors that NVIDIA was in talks with Samsung so they may also be leaving TSMC.
