AMD Zen 2 "Rome" to Sample in 2018 and release in 2019

AMD has delivered their first hits at Zen 2 at Computex 2018, confirming that the second generation 7nm Zen architecture will release in 2019 for both the consumer and enterprise markets as Ryzen and EPYC processors respectively.  

During their Computex Press Conference AMD showcased their first Zen 2 EPYC processor to the crowd, using the same socket as first-generation EPYC processors to ensure compatibility with today's enterprise motherboard designs. This compatibility will allow existing EPYC users to migrate to EPYC 2 easily.

With Intel's 10nm woes it is now possible for AMD to release a 7nm Zen 2 product into the enterprise market before Intel can release silicon on their roughly equivalent 10nm production process, giving AMD a shot at surpassing Intel in ways beyond pricing. This 7nm release could allow EPYC adoption to Skyrocket, which is great news for AMD and is more than enough reason for Intel to be worried.

AMD has "Rome"/ Zen 2 EPYC Silicon in their labs, and the company plans to sample their upcoming product in the second half of this year, making Zen 2 EPYC on track for a release in 2019.

AMD will first release their 7nm Zen 2 silicon in their Ryzen 3rd Generation (Ryzen 3000 series) products, releasing as single chip offering before releasing as Multi-die EPYC hardware.  

Sadly, AMD has not revealed any performance data for their Zen 2 architecture, though it is rumoured that AMD plans to use the die size benefits of 7nm to offer as many as 64-cores per Zen 2 EPYC processor/socket, with numbers like 48-cores also being reported.
