During the company's first quarter earnings call, AMD CEO Lisa Su revealed that Ryzen processors now account for 60 percent of overall client processor revenue, up from the low-40s in Q4 2017.
As usual, not a lot about the future roadmap was revealed but there were some interesting highlights. In particular, AMD CEO Lisa Su revealed that 7nm Radeon Instinct accelerators are running in the labs. These cards are optimized for machine learning, they'll sample to customers later this year.
AMD will use both TSMC and GlobalFoundries for its 7nm lineup. She mentioned 7nm server processors will sample this year. The Zen 2 based Ryzen desktop processors will also sample later this year to customers and will be in production in 2019.
Overall, Su believes the 7nm capability of the foundry ecosystem is very good. She claims that puts AMD in a good competitive spot from a manufacturing standpoint. In the past, Intel had the upper hand thanks to its extremely strong manufacturing unit, but in recent years the chip giant's manufacturing capability faltered.
