AMD discusses 7nm Zen 2 and Next-Generation EPYC

A radically new CPU design for 7nm.

Read more about AMD's 7nm Zen 2 Architecture and Next-Generation EPYC.

One of these days I'll change my name to Mark Bench

Link is broken Mark. It ask for sign in and password.
That is the correct link

As for the information in the article. It is pretty darn impressive imo. AVX support alone is a MASSIVE benefit for server workloads it should really help them penetrate further into the high margin markets.
As for everything else, it is nice to see AMD taking radical designs and making them workout. It has helped them with Zen and taking it a step further with Zen 2 shows the engineering talent they still have. It also shows how bad Intel have been caught sitting on their laurels.

Now if only they can apply this same engineering to GPUs.

Could this be a taste of what "scalability" meant for Navi too? Will this allow the consoles and APUs to maintain their hUMA architecture while moving beyond the cost and size limitations enforced by single-die/single node APU designs?

Just musing here... I wonder whether Navi's "scalability" will come later. As in, the first run of Navi will replace the RX 580 (well, 590 I guess) in mid 2019 after Zen 2 has had its time. And then in late 2019/early 2020, Navi will jump to 'doubling' the same core they've been selling and doubling the performance. So, if the most recent rumours (and combined with the original one where Navi was going to bring GTX 1080 performance to the $300 price point) are to be taken into account, that the working Navi silicon is exceeding expectations and is faster than a GTX 1080 slightly (hypothetically), doubling that would give you RTX 2080 Ti (faster in fact) performance levels. And it could be (again hypothetically) $600. Oh, the dream. $600 is the sweet spot. But actually $600. Not this fake $600 that's actually $750.

Navi is definitely on the path of using 'chiplets' (or similar variant) like Zen. It's just a matter of performance and power consumption. That's all people care about at this point. Price hardly matters anymore when everything is so expensive,AMD won't have much trouble competing there.

Really exciting stuff seeing the way AMD are finally competing with Intel.
I hope they go down the chiplet route for the desktop as well and maybe they can do it with gfx and get back in the game at the high end
