Finally 7nm has arrived, and they do it this time from the hand of TSMC and AMD chips. Intel is still stuck and with serious problems to go down to those 10nm, in addition to a shortage of chips that is causing that for the first time in years AMD has surpassed the sales of Intel at some point of the year. In October 2018, Intel had a market share of 72,1%, but now they have fallen in July 2019 to 49,5%, leaving AMD with a 50,5% share and rising.
And that the best has not yet arrived, the CPUs AMD Ryzen 3, Ryzen 5, Ryzen 7, and Ryzen 9 3000 Series, that is, the 3rd Generation based on Zen, specifically the Zen 2 microarchitecture. And also, in the graphic section AMD also has news for gamers, since its Radeon RX 5700 Series GPUs also based on 7nm technology are also ready.
AMD's new products have incredible potential, and the Linux kernel is already prepared to support all these chips, both the GPUs, as the CPUs and also AMD EPYC for HPC. So everyone who wants to renew their hardware for their Linux computers has a good opportunity with these releases. And by the way, you already know that the Spanish Slimbook will include the AMD 3000 series in its products ...
In terms of hardware, the Radeon RX 5700 GPU will be the first with RDNA architecture to give 1.25x better performance compared to its predecessors, and 1.5x better performance per watt to optimize energy efficiency. of the old GCN. And you know that the prices are ultra competitive, much lower than Intel and NVIDIA to be the best in terms of price / quality / performance.
