It seems like their 6nm isnt much different from their 7nm euv which is about to bring similar density improve over 7nm.

I'll tell you that the 7nm process should be dirt cheap by the time AMD releases their Navi and certainly when they release their big Navi next year along with Nvidia's 7 nm offering. No more excuses that it is a new node when 6nm has been realized and in some productions by that time.
So no more excuses from the GPU makers, unless Nvidia decides that your GPU has now new chips that will also cook you eggs in the morning for an extra $1000.
Please, AMD wouldnt have gone the ways of chiplets instead of monolithic chips if 7nm prices were able to drop down that quick.
