TSMC plans to move to 7nm in 2018

This 7nm node will lack EUV technology, instead relying on DUV.



Read more on TSMC's 7nm process tech.

7nm will almost certainly be the starting gun for the next generation of consoles, so I guess this will push them out to at least a 2019, probably 2020 release.

Not a lot of EUV right now anyway. They will move to it asap though it'll likely be after AMDs next gen stuff since they announced Zen 2/Navi are 7nm

Judging by recent roadmaps from AMD and Globalfoundries, it looks like there will not be any EUV until around Zen 3 and the generation after Navi.

Glofo's 7nm will only get EUV tech when they create their second and third generation 7nm nodes, which is likely what AMD refers to when they talk about 7nm+

This means that Navi and Zen 2 almost certainly be made on their vanilla 7nm node, which is fully DUV.
