NVIDIA CEO praises energy efficiency of Turing, stays quiet about 7nm

During yesterday's first-quarter earnings call, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang received a question about the company's 7nm plans. Huang didn't really share anything new, but pointed out that NVIDIA doesn't really need 7nm right now as its 12nm Turing GPUs deliver outstanding power efficiency versus 7nm GPUs from AMD:
In terms of process notes we tend to design our own process with TSMC. If you look at our process and you measure its energy efficiency, it's off the charts. And in fact, if you take our Turing and you compare it against a 7-nanometer GPU on energy efficiency, it's incomparable. In fact, the world's 7-nanometer GPU already exists and it's easy to go and pull that and compare the performance and energy efficiency against one of our current GPUs. And so that the real focus for our engineering team is to engineer a process that makes sense for us and to create an architecture that is energy efficient. And the combination of those two things allows us to sustain our leadership position. Otherwise, buying off the shelf process is something that we can surely do, but we want to do much more than that.
