Today, tsmc is expected to produce five nm (5nm enhanced) in the fourth quarter of this year, but further revelations suggest that AMD seems to have decided to change the key processes of the fourth-generation ruillon processor (Vermeer, vermeer).
According to the roadmap released earlier by AMD, the AMD Zen 3 family product is based on the 7Nm process, and the Zen 4 will be upgraded to 5nm next year, The AMD's fourth generation, however, will be upgraded directly to nm .5 because of the unusually smooth progress
This is in line with the previous report from the same source. At that time, the line reported that TSMC is building a unique 5nm process for AMD.
However, this also brings a problem. Amd needs to postpone the release plan of the fourth generation sharp dragon, which was originally scheduled for September and October. Of course, amd has never made clear the exact time of zen3 before, only to say that later this year, there will be operating space.
With the support of more advanced technology, it is not impossible for zen3 to increase the IPC by more than 15-20%, and even the frequency will be higher.
In addition, AMD's acceleration will also help to enhance its competitive position in the market, at least to continue to maintain the obvious advantages for Intel in the process.
