When AMD claimed to want to jump down to 7nm after they were done with 14 I thought that was lofty especially with Intel struggling on 10nm. But if Global Foundries is already getting ready, it may actually not be that long before they have something new.

I hope AMD says screw the additional option of power efficiency and goes straight for the 40% performance increase

I just hope it won't be problematic to produce silicon that tiny. We are already having insane memory prices because the new process isn't that good.

That is not the reason. The reason prices are high is because Samsung were having issues with it at 18nm. Another company were taking longer than expected to release there 17nm. Micron is not having any issues but cannot keep up with the supply demand of consumers since the two biggest memory suppliers couldn't produce there own chips. Micron cannot cover the slack, hence price increase. It should start falling a little later this year.

Besides all that, this 7nm is not intended for memory at the moment for dram or vram
