10.1 Just after the holiday,Amd released a new generation of the sharp dragon 5000 series processor , upgraded to Zen3 architecture,IPC performance soared by 19%, game performance soared by 26%In the mononuclear and game has surpassed the opponent, this time is completely turned over.
The Zen3 architecture is very good and powerful, but there is still a problem in the process process is not confirmed, is it really as rumored to upgrade to the enhanced version of the N7 process?
Early official roadmap or 7 nm craft
On the early road map, the Zen3 marked 7 nm, rumors and the use of EUV technology,But after the March meeting of financial analysts,The official description of the process has changed, zen3 and the upcoming rdna2 have become 7Nm processes.
What kind of process is zen3? After verification, the foreign media,AMD said that the Ruilong 5000 series processor uses the same process as the Ruilong 3000 XT series and is a more mature 7 nm, but not entirely 7 process.
As we have previously reported, there are three processes nm nodes have three processes
There are also nm seven N7P enhancement processes (often 7 nm), and seven processes, which mainly use EUV lithography machines,The n7p is fully compatible with N7, with a performance improvement of 7% and a power consumption reduction of 10%.
In a word, TSMC's new technology is a bit chaotic. In fact, there is no big difference among the three 7Nm technologies. The main reason is that TSMC has launched different branches to ensure the progress.
Return to the AMD side, before the unified change to 7 nm process has a hunch that the enhanced version of the 7 nm process is impossible, can now be confirmedThe 7Nm process of Ruilong 5000 / zen3, which is the previous 7Nm process, is optimized. In fact, there is no significant upgrade.
For AMD, this should maximize the use of existing resources. After all, the OEM price of n7p process will only be higher, and the 7Nm of EUV version will be more expensive.
