As they continue on building momentum, AMD held an impressive Tech Day at CES 2018 unveiling a series of products and detailing their aggressive roadmap going forward.
At CES 2018 Intel announced the first series of the much anticipated Core i5 and i7 chips with Radeon graphics. Those parts incorporate a Kaby Lake microprocessor, a Vega M GPU, and 4 GiB of HBM2 cache.
At the 2017 IEDM GlobalFoundries detailed their 7nm Leading Performance (7LP) process, an aggressively scaled version of their 14nm process optimized for next-generation mobile, SoC, and high-performance applications.
Capping off a great year, AMD CEO Lisa Su opening address at IEDM 2017 highlighted key challenges for the future, predicting a paradigm shift in the design of processors and systems that will deliver another decade of performance gains.
Intel has announced they will be introducing an 8th generation processor featuring a discrete AMD Radeon GPU along with HBM2. Using Intel’s new EMIB packaging interconnect technology, the single-chip solution provides higher performance while delivering a smaller form factor than comparable solutions.
