Nvidia next-gen GPUs are likely to use Samsung's 7nm EUV node

Rumour has it that Nvidia is avoiding TSMC's 7nm process.



Read more about Nvidia's next-gen GPUs reportedly using Samsung's 7nm EUV tech.

I sincerely hope that they will bring out (an affordable) refresh in 7nm this year - doing another year with a 1080 is not something that I can do.

Otherwise, good thing they're going with Samsung!

Well, it certainly seems like there's at least one company with an afford 7nm refresh coming this year at least, assuming the rumours of Navi coming in two or more die sizes are true.

I don't see multi-die Navi being a thing this gen. At least for the gaming market. Gaming is super latency sensitive, so multi-die communication can be a big problem.

On the compute side, for datacenters and workstations, it could work very well though, as they don't care as much about those factors, just that the work gets done.

I meant as in Navi coming in at least a small and large die version, the rumoured Navi 10/20 and Navi 12 iirc. We've long heard Navi would be a mainstream competitor, but recent comments from AMD suggest it will also target NVidia's higher end cards too(Though presumably not top end for now). I guess a ~40CU then a ~64CU version would make the most sense first for mainstream performance/Polaris 10 & high end/Vega replacements(Especially given yields will be spottier with first gen 7nm, so they could possibly use 3 distinct bins per die across these segments to make the best use of all the silicon, say 64/56/48 and 40/32/24 CU versions, which would cover more or less their whole desktop stack), with a smaller one(~16CU) maybe coming abit later to replace Polaris 11 low bin & 12 and some applications of Vega M's lower bins, I wouldn't rule out it being used for Ryzen4000G too if multi-die Ryzen comes to consumer platforms this year. (Maybe the order those launches in will play out differently though depending on which rumours & AMD talk applies to when)

Can't do with a 1080? It's like the perfect card for 1440p lol
Unless you want much higher fps

Nah need more power, more I say! seeing as I have to turn down settings in today's games - and quite a few and significantly at that to stay around 60-80 FPS.

I don't dare try the upcoming metro on this old chap, or cyberpunk.

Really? Interesting. I rarely turn settings down and still manage 60/60+
Although some games are just that bad for performance so if you play those games that's understandable

Yeah they sure are. Odyssey, latest tomb raider I imagine and so on, are all performance hogs.
