Su also showed the CPU itself, and discussed how it was different from any other AMD chips you may have seen. With a massive 16GB of 2nd gen high bandwidth memory under the hood, plus a whopping memory bandwidth of 1TB/s, this graphics card is geared up for 4K gaming at maximum settings. Compared to AMD's own previous generation card, the Radeon RX Vega 64, Radeon VII achieves up to 35 percent better performance in Battlefield V, 25 percent in Fortnite, and 42 percent in Strange Brigade.More news: Canadian and Italian tourists feared kidnapped in Burkina Faso
Here's the Radeon VII in the flesh.
The Radeon VII, the world's first consumer 7nm graphics card, promises to deliver twice the memory, more than twice the memory bandwidth and up to 29 percent higher gaming performance than the Radeon RX Vega 64 GPU. The AMD Radeon VII graphics card will be available from February 7, 2019 for $699 Dollars.More news: Special needs teacher drags autistic boy down hall
It's not clear if we'll see any downstream Radeon VII products. It provides up to 27 percent higher performance in the popular open source 3D creation application Blender7, up to 27 percent higher performance in the professional video editing, color correction and visual effects application DaVinci Resolve 158, and up to 62 percent higher performance in the OpenCL™ LuxMark compute benchmark9 compared to the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card.
If it can match the performance of the RTX 2080, however, Nvidia has already established that you can charge up to $800 for such a card. All things being equal Far Cry 5 and Battlefield V both generally favour AMD GPUs thanks to their history with its GCN architecture.More news: Update On Chris Jericho's Status With NJPW
The official name of the 7 nm gaming GPU is Radeon VII (7) and it looks like AMD is positioning it as a direct competitor for Nvidia's RTX 2080. With price parity against the RTX 2080, AMD is clearly angling to challenge that chip, but we won't know how effective that challenge will be until we have hardware in-house. Well, Dr. Su mentioned the next-gen GPU architecture by name only once, when mentioning the future architectures of AMD.
