With the Zen2 architecture of the Ruilong 3000 and the Navi-based RX 5700 series of graphics cards, AMD finally came up with competitive products in the CPU and GPU markets in the Q3 quarter, and all of them are 7nm technology, which is better than Intel. NVIDIA must lead.
In the CPU field, after the launch of the Ruilong 3000 processor, the market's response was also good, and the hot sale was indispensable. Some models even appeared to be snapped up.In the German, Dutch and Japanese markets, before the launch of the Ruilong 3000, AMD's processor sales accounted for more than Intel. In the Korean market, the retail share of the Ruilong 3000 also exceeded 50%..
The advent of the Ruilong 3000 also made Intel fall into awkwardness, because AMD's process technology has not yet reached Intel's level on the Ruilong 1st and 2nd generation processors. Although it is 14nm node, Intel improved the 3rd generation 14nm++ process. The GF's 14/12nm process performance is not as good as the Intel 14nm process.
Now that AMD is holding the 7nm Ruilong 3000 processor, the process technology has spanned two generations over 14nm. The Zen2 architecture improvement has also brought the single-core performance of the Ruilong 3000 processor to catch up, so some analysts praised AMD for creating history. —— surpasses Intel in both CPU performance and process.
Intel has started mass production of 10nm technology in June this year. Ice Lake's 10th generation Core processor has been shipped, but it is mainly for the mobile market, and the desktop version will be until 2020.
Further down is the 7nm process. Intel CEO Si Ruibo confirmed that the 7nm process will be launched within two years, that is, in 2021.
However, he did not mention that the 20nm process was first introduced for the Xe accelerator card in 2021, not the CPU processor, which means that the 7nm CPU is likely to wait another year until 2022.
Because of this, the Techradar website reported that Intel admitted that it was backward, and that the 7nm process would take 2 years to catch up with AMD.
