AMD told investors that it's sampling next-gen Zen 2 processors with 7-nanometer tech in preparation for a launch in 2019.
During the company's recent conference call with analysts, AMD CEO consifrmed that the company's next-generation 7-nanometer Radeon Instinct product, optimized for machine learning workloads, is running in AMD's labs and with samples to be on track for shipping later this year.
Rival Intel also recently told investors that its 10-nanometer "Cannon Lake" chips won't be ready until 2019.
AMD's 7-nanometer Vega-based GPUs will be manufactured by TSMC, said AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su, but the company will also use Global Foundries, presumably for processors and other products.
AMD recently launched its second-generation Zen chips, which use current 14-nanometer 10.
