A new report suggests that AMD may launch 7nm 48-Cores Processor in 2018. The AMD internal roadmap leaked reveals current and upcoming processors line. AMD Zen 1 CPU line in 2017 and Zen 2 is expected to launch in 2018. Recent leaks also suggest that AMD rival Intel is also working on a high-end Core i9 Processors line.
According to the leaked slides, AMD is working on 48-core server processor with 96 threads based on Zen 2 Cores. That product has code-name Starship and would be based on 7nm Finfet. TDPs would run anywhere from 30W up to 185W.
