It looks like 2018 is indeed a pretty big year with full of surprises. First, we will be witnessing some of the mega-blockbuster gaming titles such as the Battlefield V, Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Far Cry 5, Just Cause 4, Assassins Creed: Odyssey and many more which might already be released or are going to get released in the upcoming months. Same can be said about the computer hardware world where we already witnessed the release of Ryzen 2nd Generation Processors along with that of Threadripper and the much-awaited launch of Nvidia’s upcoming GPU’s the RTX series which is the current topic of debate and more or less we are seeing new posts about the RTX Cards on daily basis.
And in the midst of all of these, we came to know that AMD is on track with their launch scheduled of the world’s first 7nm graphics cards later this year which have been confirmed in a recent press release by AMD’s CEO Dr Su who narrates that:
“AMD’s next major milestone is the introduction of our upcoming 7nm product portfolio, including the initial products with our second generation “Zen 2” CPU core and our new “Navi” GPU architecture. We have already taped out multiple 7nm products at TSMC, including our first 7nm GPU planned to launch later this year and our first 7nm server CPU that we plan to launch in 2019”
Therefore, folks, we are in a situation where we have got multiple options to try with and find out which will be the best GPU between these two arch-rivals. As we are already aware of the details on the RTX cards but details on the 7nm GPU from AMD are not available yet. However, we have already seen a working 7nm GPU silicon back at the Computex which is based on an improved variation of the Vega architecture. According to rumours, the upcoming 7nm GPU supports AI instruction along with HBM2 8GB stacks running across a 4096-bit memory interface for a total of 32GB vRAM which led us to one question which GPU should we buy next. In my opinion, both the cards have not been reviewed yet, however, the Nvidia RTX Cards will be reviewed soon and we will need to wait a bit further to know the details of the AMD’s upcoming 7nm GPU so its a pretty tricky situation as of for now and I will prefer to wait a little longer to see the performance of these cards and then will decide which one should I go for.
According to Dr. Su, AMD is planning to bring the 7nm GPU’s to the gamers and if everything goes well then we are going to see this 7nm GPU’s really soon which might be early 2019. For more details on the press-release check this link out.
