TSMC and GloFo may compete to produce the most overclockable AMD Zen 2 CPUs

May. 29, 2018 – 

Semiconductor manufacturer GlobalFoundries has confirmed its 7nm process will be shipping products by the end of 2018 - the first of which is set to be an AMD processor. While TSMC is currently still roped in to produce AMD's first 7nm Vega GPU, similarities in 7nm process manufacturing could lead to two foundries producing identical product for team red down the line.

Lisa Su confirmed earlier in the year AMD would be splitting 7nm product lines across multiple foundries - at great expense due to AMD's deal with GloFo made when the two companies split. Initially, we assumed this to mean CPU manufacturing would end up in the hands of GlobalFoundries and GPU production diverted off to TSMC.

AMD's first 7nm product is set to be the machine-learning Vega card built using TSMC's 7nm tech, and GlobalFoundries has now confirmed that it will be producing a 7nm AMD processor - all according to plan then. This is likely to be AMD's first samples of Zen 2, as the company confirmed that it would be sampling these chips before the year's out.
