This is not true. You're confusing it with Vega 20 die codename for machine learning, the first 7nm GPU that will come to maker later this year as Lisa Su specified a few days ago.
This is Vega 20 SKU for consumers which is built on 14nm as it's specified on AMD's website. This was...
What about what I said about 5nm high volume production? The article is still misleading!!!
Here's a quote from the source:
Risk production starts a year before mass production. Dude, you should now this stuff by now because you're many years in the game. Step it up!
5 nm RISK Production in April 2019
It's not HVM (High Volume Manufacturing), it's risk production where each IC manufacturer makes a few hundred test wafers to test the final silicon in their labs and to sample its partners that integrate it in their products.
We won't see 5nm HVM until Q2...
Reading comprehension. Someone needs it. :D
1. AMD doesn't say Navi is coming late 2018. They're talking about Vega (20) on 7nm (MI Instinct) that we already know about for many months.
2. Zen 2 isn't coming in 2018, but 2019 as AMD clearly says in the press release.
Ruff weekend, eh?
You headline says the companies were fined, but your contents doesn't touch this topic. Your source, Digitimes, said that they could be fined. Were they fine of not? Which one is it?!

35W for a dual-core socketed CPU in a laptop is a terrible idea.
Desktop CPU versions (65W, 95W) are used in laptops for big beefy gaming laptops, not a tiny dual-core Athlon. There's no incentive for a OEM to use this puny socketed CPU in a laptop when there are better mobile AMD versions on...
