20nm GPUs not coming due to bad yields

Posted on Tuesday, January 13 2015 @ 14:06:23 CET by


FUD Zilla claims 20nm has been completely written off for GPUs because the yields are so bad it doesn't make sense to proceed. While the low-power 20nm processes didn't cause significant problems for SoCs, it seems GPUs won't be moving to smaller nodes until the arrival of TSMC's 16nm FinET and GlobalFoundries/Samsung's 14nm FinFET.
This means the real next big thing technology will be coming with 16nm / 14nm FinFET from TSMC and GlobalFoundries / Samsung respectively, but we know that AMD is working on Caribbean Islands and Fiji as well, while Nvidia has been working on its new chip too.

This doesn’t mean that you cannot pull a small miracle in 28nm, as Nvidia did that back in September 2014 with Maxwell and proved that you can make a big difference with optimization on the same manufacturing process, in case when the new node is not an option.
