During a recent press conference, Nvidia’s Korean Chief Yoo Eung-Joon confirmed that the green team would be utilising Samsung’s 7nm EUV manufacturing process to create the company’s next-generation products. 

This information was confirmed by the Korea Herald, who claim that Samsung’s technology will be used to create Nvidia’s 2020 graphics card lineup. This means that Nvidia’s next-generation graphics cards will not be using the same 7nm process as AMD’s upcoming Navi offerings, which comes via TSMC, though it does mean that Nvidia will be jumping onto 7nm with Extreme Ultraviolet technology from the getgo. 

Nvidia’s latest RTX and RTX Super series graphics cards utilise TSMC’s 12nm manufacturing capabilities, which are a step behind the 7nm technology which will power AMD’s upcoming Navi graphics cards. Nvidia’s efficient Turing architecture works to mitigate the company’s lack of node parity with AMD, showcasing how design can trump node size.

With Nvidia’s 12nm RTX Super series of graphics cards launching today, it seems clear that Nvidia has no plans to release a consumer-grade 7nm graphics card before 2020, as otherwise, their RTX Super lineup would have a shelf life of less than six months.
