    Wasn't Nvidia 20nm delayed till 2015?

    Nvidia will wait till AMD releases Pirate Island first then figure out how little or how hard they will have to try to beat it.

    Yeah, just checking because that's the last I read. I know it's rumours. In a way, I want AMD to come second this time. Let Nvidia come first, with whatever outrageous pricing they choose, then AMD comes, prices go down, Rob makes a purchase. Everyone happy.

    Yeah, I think AMD should do that, it's only wise not to go first.

    Just rumors, but either way doesn't affect what AMD does...unless TSMC can't pull off 20nm for some reason.

    If that R9 390X spec is true... HOLY DAMN!!!

    Think I will hold off getting a second 7970 til I hear more about that potential beast!

    Speculation based at least partially on fact...

    Speculation based on the baseless idea that these companies actually have the ability to make abrupt and substantial architectural changes to a chip regardless of the fact that they're typically already in final production and would have to kill things full-stop, make changes, go through the tape-out process, obtain re-certification and approval, then re-start the entire pre production/ramping up/full production process all over again.

    The only thing that can be done so far along is increase mem/core clocks if the silicon process is mature, with good enough yields, to allow for the additional voltage while avoiding leakage and other heat inducing factors.


    The possible delay of nVidia's Maxwell has a direct correlation to when AMD will be able to release their chips because they're both being manufactured at TSMC and right now it seems TSMC's 20nm wafer capacity is completely booked till the end of Q3 2014 by smartphone and tablet manufacturers.


    Just the facts Ma'am...

    AMD isn't limited to just TSMC. lol

    AMD also has a deal with GloFo for GPUs... So, if TSMC can't put out GPUs for them, AMD can simply fall back to GloFo.

    I do not see AMD going with 7GHz GDDR5 in 512bit configuration.
    If you want to make bets, then it's more probable that top-end will have HBM instead.

    The 380x is probably the card most people are waiting for... hence why it is coming out last :(.

    I'm pretty sure the higher the memory bus, the lower the memory clock...
    Anyways that site is known to produce fake articles with no listed sources just for ad revenue.

    Is GlobalFoundries ready to make 20nm GPUs?
