While you might be hoping for some mainstream GPU news, AMD actually showed off its next-generation 7nm Radeon Instinct chip meant for deep-learning applications. That said, Radeon Instinct 7nm still looks very exciting as it packs a whopping 32 GB HBM2 video memory.
According to AMD, the miniaturized process brings forth 35% more over last generation 14nm nodes. All the while power efficiency has been doubled, so it can theoretically do the same amount of work now with half the wattage.
