First it was that the Navi 2X GPUs would be on 6nm for the Radeon RX 7600/7500 series graphics cards from leaker Greymon55, but now Tom from Moore's Law is Dead is chiming in with some comments and his own sources confirming the news as well.

Tom explains the Navi 2X GPUs and future mid-range Radoen RX 7000 series GPUs: "because it's just -- it's not really a node shrink -- TSMC 6nm is design compatible with their 7nm. But, kinda of a half node shrink with little work required, because that is what it is -- AMD can kinda make sure this is out somewhat closer to the Xe launch if you want to, they just can do this".

"There's a lot going on behind the scenes, and a lot of it is targeted at now facilitating some supply to system integrators for low-end cards, and AMD's perspective -- directly to gamers on the DIY market. They're both preparing their combat for Xe -- and when you see little drops happen here or there, it's not a yes or no thing, and there's nuance. So, look for the details -- pay attention".
