During the firm's second quarter earnings call, AMD CEO Lisa Su revealed that they received the first 7nm EPYC chips based on the Zen 2 design in Q2 2018. Codenamed "Rome", the chip recently started sampling to select customers and is on track for a launch in 2019.
Finally, I'm very pleased with our execution against our long-term roadmap. We received first silicone of our next generation 7-nanometer EPYC processor with Zen 2, code-named Rome, in the second quarter. And the silicon quality and bring-up has gone very well. I am happy to report that we've recently started sampling Rome to select partners for early validation and we are on track to launch in 2019, strengthening our already outstanding competitive position in the market. We remain focused on our near-term milestone of achieving mid-single digit server unit share by the end of 2018 on the path to our midterm goal of double digit market share.
She also mentioned that the 7nm Vega GPU is on track for a launch later this year. Sampling of this product started last quarter.
