NVIDIA to Implement 7nm EUV Node for its 2020 GPUs

NVIDIA will implement the 7 nanometer EUV (extreme ultraviolet) lithography to build its future generation of GPUs slated for 2020, according to Japanese publication MyNavi.jp. The GPU giant could be among the first customers besides IBM, to contract Samsung for 7 nm EUV mass-production of GPUs. IBM will use the Korean semiconductor giant for manufacturing Z-series processors and FPGAs. Samsung announced in October 2018 that it will begin risk-production on its 7 nm EUV node in early-2019.

An earlier report from 2018 also forecast NVIDIA implementing 7 nm DUV (deep ultraviolet) node of TSMC for its 2019 GPU lineup. With news of the company now working with Samsung on 7 nm EUV for 2020, this seems less likely. It's possible that NVIDIA could somehow split its next generation GPU lineup between TSMC 7 nm DUV and Samsung 7 nm EUV, with the latter being used for chips with higher transistor-counts, taking advantage of the node's higher deliverable transistor densities.

Maybe Jensen will provide some insight in an hour at CES 2019 or just talk about Autos.

7nm EUV would be expensive AF during the initial implementation stage. Especially if the plan is to take current Turing core and scale it larger.

Yep, if you think Turing was costly, think again.

This is why RTX needs to die. Its a luxury we can't afford.

Imagine the green damage control shitstorms if 7nm Navi in Q3 rumors are true, and that for nearly half a year.

Well, here I was expecting more 14nm chips :D ...

And don't get too excited over this EUV tech, it's not used in much of the process. This is exactly what TSMC has been talking about with Apples up and coming chips.

The real EUV stuff is coming later, years later.

I thought it was pretty well confirmed that 7mm Navi for Data Industry is going to happen?
