In his speech, Su Ma briefly reviewed the development of the semiconductor industry in recent years. In the past decade, the performance improvement of semiconductor chips has largely come from the progress of the process. It can be seen that among the factors affecting performance improvement, the process factor accounts for 40% of the total, while the micro-architecture and power management add up to only about 40% performance improvement.

Then she mentioned that Moore's Law is getting slower and slower.
With the same area of chips, the cost of using new processes is rising.
In the speech above, Su Ma also highlighted the development speed of the current popular artificial intelligence field. The demand for computing power in the AI field doubled almost every 3 to 4 months.
The speed of development of supercomputers has doubled every 1.2 years, and it has slowed down in recent years, but it is still much faster than the development of personal computers.
When answering the speech of the audience, Su Ma was asked aboutAMDThe workstation platform and related information about the thread ripper, she replied:
We love the workstation market, and of course there will be next-generation thread tearers.
When asked about the specific time of the next generation of thread rippers, Su Ma avoided it, but told me roughly that in 2019, there will be more news about the next generation of thread rippers.
There are also listeners who asked if CrossFire, or AMD graphics card crossfire technology, will return to this issue, she explained:
We love the players and we are always listening to the players. GPU performance will continue to grow at a high speed. To be honest, software is moving faster than hardware, and CrossFire is not a big point. GPUs can do more in the hands of consumers.
In other words, we may not see the return of CrossFire in the short term.
