AMD roadmaps reveal "Starship" series CPUs

 
Anyone who is well acquainted with AMD should know that they have big plans for the Enterprise/ High-End Desktop (HEDT) market, with plans to take back market share from Intel and cement themselves as a worthy competitor in the x86 arena once more. 

Thankfully AMD's plans do not end with Ryzen, with the company planning to create even more impressive CPUs with increased core counts and future manufacturing technologies. Recently leaked roadmaps from AMD show that the company is planning to create codename "Starship" CPUs which will be built on a 7nm FinFET manufacturing process and offer up to 48 total CPU cores and 96 total threads. 

  
This plan will have AMD release a CPU that offers 50% more cores than their upcoming Naples CPUs by mid-2019, which will come with the same TDPs as Naples and in theory offer 50% or higher performance gains if clock speeds remain the same. At this time it is expected that these new CPUs will also be using a next-generation GPU architecture that will offer performance improvements beyond their current Zen/Ryzen offerings

AMD roadmaps reveal

  

AMD plans to make a success out of their new Zen CPU architecture in the mobile, server and consumer markets, though it is clear that AMD's strategy stretches out well into the future with intentions to use upcoming process technologies and to evolve their new Ryzen CPU architecture to better suit the needs of consumers. 

Lisa Su, AMD's CEO has already stated that AMD plans to jump immediately to 7nm after 14nm, which should offer some significant performance advantages for upcoming AMD hardware, though it remains to be seen how well GlobalFoundries' 7nm node will perform and how long it will take for it to be production ready.

Could be a futile release what with Intel kicking it up a notch but then again AMD's prime directive is all about going places no one has gone before...Quote

You jokes, no?

AMD slaughtered Intel on server price per performance dude. You could build a quad CPU 64 core monster for the same as Intel were charging for their top end Xeon.

The Opteron was a saviour for AMD. You need to remember, in server land threads are like air. You can utilise all of them so the more the merrier. And AMD always offered fantastic value for money. Good bit was that in the past some of them made fantastic desktop CPUs. I *think* it was the 140? that you could OC from 1.6ghz to 3ghz ! 85%+ overclocks dude.

This is what AMD have not had since forever. Bulldozer was poo, and would have made a poo server chip and they were stuck at 8c too.

Ryzen though? oh god, the mind boggles how good it could work out to be in serverland.Quote
