AMD illustrates how much more a 5nm and 7nm chip costs to make

During its SemiCon West presentation, AMD showed the progress of Moore's Law is decreasing and it also showed a slide that illustrates how the cost of smaller process nodes keeps increasing. The chart below reveals the normalized cost per yielded mm² for a 250mm² chip die.

Over the past decade, costs have shot up and especially the last chip generation is a lot more expensive to make than the previous. Beyond the 14nm/16nm node, there's a steep acceleration in the cost per yielded mm². AMD says this makes increasing die size economically problematic.

AMD cost per die mm vs process tech

The solution is seen in microarchitectural advances, chiplets and die stacking, and heterogenous platforms.
