Having said that, the chip is still reportedly very unstable so it’s not all sunshine and rainbows.
Take a look at our review of the Ryzen 2700X here.
If AMD is close to pulling this off, this would be a real blow to Intel as they’re struggling to get 10mn processors into the market. The current Ryzen 2 processors are built upon 12nm architecture, so a jump to 7 would be an extremely impressive feat.
We’re probably not going to be seeing these chips until mid-2019 at the earliest, but we do know that AMD’s EPYC server-grade processors already make use of the 7nm process on the Zen 2 architecture.
Intel is due to refresh their Coffee Lake line up at some point soon too, but these signs from AMD indicate that its certainly maintaining an aggressive stance towards every angle of the processor market, from the low-end consumer all the way up to server level.
