AMD working on 7nm Gray Hawk quad-core APU for 2019

A couple more tidbits about AMD's future processor plans appeared online. The next big step in AMD's CPU roadmap is the launch of the first 14nm Zen processors early next year, with Zen-based APUs following later in the second half of 2017.

AMD Starship to offer up to 48 cores, 96 threads
This post takes a look at the current plans for the first 7nm processors from AMD. FUD Zilla claims this includes Starship, a 7nm processor that promises up to 48 cores and 96 threads. Starship is aimed at the high-end desktop and the server markets, and will reportedly target TDP values ranging from 35W to a massive 180W. No launch date is given but I wouldn't expect it before late 2018 at the earliest.

AMD Gray Hawk is the 7nm APU
In the second half of 2017, AMD is expected to introduce the 14nm Raven Ridge, the first Zen-based APU with Polaris-based integrated graphics. It seems Gray Hawk will be Raven Ridge's successor, this chip will be made on a 7nm process and will offer up to four cores with eight threads. Perhaps Gray Hawk will feature Navi-based graphics, but that's still unclear. The report also mentions Gray Hawk will be offered in TDPs as low as 10W and mentions it is scheduled for a 2019 launch.

As always take this information with a grain of salt, it's based on current rumors and these specifications and plans are subject to change. If the information is correct, it seems there may be a relatively big gap between the launch of the first Zen-based products and the next generation.
