In the past few years, AMD has the advantage of advanced processes, especially in GPU graphics cards, the first to use the 7nm and 5nm process, NVIDIA is still using 12nm, 8nmm process, this year in the RTX 40 series only with TSMC 4N process, in fact, is also 5nm.
AMD's RX 7900 series is also a 5nm process, the result of the two sides of the official battle after the RTX 40 series of graphics cards, whether in performance or energy efficiency are superior, which is one of the reasons why we are not satisfied with the RX 7900 series of graphics cards recently, the same 5nm process, and the core area adds up to about the same, are about 500mm2, N card's 5nm performance win.
NVIDIA's side only has the expensive slot, but the RX 7900 is not much better at the moment, counting the premium price.
Is such a thing unexpected? In fact, it is not unexpected. The current situation is what NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has seen for a long time, as early as 2019 when AMD was the first to use the 7nm process and N cards were still using the 12nm and 8nm process, as explained by Jen-Hsun Huang.
He previously said in an interview that TSMC's 7nm process was openly sold and tried to market it to NVIDIA, but NVIDIA did not choose 7nm at that time (in fact, old Huang was too expensive).The reason is that if a company only relies on the craftsmanship of others, where is its own genius ability manifested?
He emphasized the genius of NVIDIA is the ability of engineers, even when the process is behindNVIDIA has also made graphics cards with better performance, better power efficiency, lower cost, and more features than those produced by friendly advanced processes.
Looking back now, Jen-Hsun Huang's boast three years ago was not bragging. Before, the process was a generation behind to win, and now with the same process, NVIDIA's advantage in performance and power efficiency is more obvious, which is their engineering ability different from other manufacturers.
