7nm in itself makes it sound very made-up, even if they're talking 2018 a lot would have to go right considering it took upwards of four years just to get away from 28nm.

There has been a significant delay on pretty much every die shrink that I can remember. I'll be shocked if we see 7nm by 2020, much less before then.

GlobalFoundries is skipping 10nm altogether so 2018 isn't an impossibility, but it does sound like PR talk where everything magically works out with no problems what so ever.

I'm always ready to eat my words, though. If it is true and at an even remotely affordable price point... Consider it bought.

So, it seems Vega 20 is on the road map for 2019.
I take anything I read on wccftech with buckets of salt, but 2019 is much more believable. Three years is much more doable to move from 14nm to 7nm. So, I am just going to get Vega 10, 11, or whatever. My 780 is aging by the minute, and I don't think 2019 is in the cards.

7nm is not impossible but highly improbable so close to the 14nm debut.
however the future, according to earlier roadmaps, is more into the effort to make 90+% crossfire efficiency the norm by making the hardware more autonomous on the use of CF, thus removing the "game to game" results based on how much effort the developer put into CF
