Indeed they do have allot of options, plus they have more experience with 7nm at TSMC than nVidia, so that advantage can't exactly be understated.

In saying that, Navi is still going to be a pretty average GPU all things considered... And won't be besting nVidia at 12nm (Aka 16nm Enhanced.)

8 SE's even with 64 CU's and a beefy clockrate should result in a chunky uplift though, especially backed by GDDR6 on a 256bit bus.

Navi wouldn't be besting Nvidia anyway with a small die but at least both both of their latest and greatest are similar from a power efficiency standpoint and depending on the exact measurements of the die size, AMD could potentially have a more die area efficient design ... 

AMD has many opportunities they could take. If they decide to launch next year, they'll have another year to improve the architecture and can transition to EUV ...
