Hygon is currently working on a huge "7nm/7nm+/6nm" CoWoS/InFo successor to both of these Hygon CPU*1 + Vega20*4 & Hygon CPU*2 + Vega20*1. Which will be with a 7nm Hygon CPU 3rd Gen? and 7nm Hygon GPU 1st Gen?.AMD unequivocally declared the JV dead before a Zen2/7nm equivalent core changed hands.
Hygon can exist without AMD, they bought TangremTek which did the SEV-hack in 2017 "sev hack demo by tangramtek 2017"
"Continue to lead the secure software department as secure archtect after the department of TangramTek is acquired by HYGON."
"After the embargo was announced, Hygon could no longer obtain AMD's new product architecture license, but this did not affect the authorization already obtained. Hygon has set up a research and development team of more than 500 people, and has the ability to further develop new products and improve CPU performance based on the already obtained authorization. This also means that the CPU of the X86 architecture may have a hard fork in China in the future, and we will part ways from the United States and go out of our way."
Hygon is a rogue x86 manufacturer and they got GCN too! They acquired teams from Samsung CPU/GPU/SoC as well, but I'm not sure how big that info is. They can also port their designs: http://www.umc.com/English/process/a14.asp & https://www.smics.com/en/site/technology_advanced_14 and they have access to TSMC.
