AMD announces plans to build its Navi and Zen 2 on 7nm

On the AMD 2017 Financial Analyst Day, AMD announced plans to create their two next-generation CPU and GPU products on a 7nm manufacturing process, with both Zen 2 and Navi to build on the 7nm process.

AMD also revealed that they are currently using leapfrogging design teams which are designing both next-generation CPU and GPU products, which means that AMD’s design plans extend well into the future. AMD will be focusing on increased performance and performance-per-watt improvements with each new product design, not only owing these improvements to process node changes but to in-depth design changes at the silicon level.

AMD will release two new CPU and GPU architectures by 2020 as we can see in the road map, offing promising advancements from Vega and Ryzen.
