AMD Announces Radeon VII GPU During CES Keynote

AMD Radeon VII GPU AMD Launches Next Radeon VII GPU, the World's First 7nm GPU
Katie Ramirez | 10 January, 2019, 00:28

It's also hard to know what such a part would be called given that Radeon VII is a clear reference to the 7nm process.

Radeon VII comes equipped with 60 compute units/3840 stream processors running at up to 1.8GHz.

Today at CES 2019, AMD announced 3rd-generation Ryzen desktop processors, the first to support PCI 4.0.

Extreme gaming performance: The AMD Radeon VII graphics card delivers exceptional performance in DirectX 12- and Vulkan-based games, including up to 35 percent higher performance in Battlefield V, and up to 42 percent higher performance in Strange Brigade, compared to the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card. Features like Async compute, rapid packed math and shader intrinsics also namechecked.

Built on the enhanced second-generation AMD "Vega" architecture, AMD Radeon VII provides 2X the memory, 2.1X the memory bandwidth, up to 29 percent higher gaming performance on average, and up to 36 percent higher performance on average in content creation applications compared to the current top-of-the-line AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card. So what's inside the new Radeon VII?

More news: Chelsea agree to sign Gonzalo Higuain as Alvaro Morata heads for Sevilla

The Radeon VII will serve as a more direct competitor to Nvidia's RTX 2080 model and will retail for the same price of $699.

It's not clear if we'll see any downstream Radeon VII products.

More importantly, AMD says the Radeon VII will be able to deliver up to 25% more performance for the same amount of power - which is good news considering how loud and hot the Vega 64 now runs.

To be fair, the i9-9900K is one of Intel's most powerful, and power-hungry desktop chips, and AMD's chips have yet to ship - so it's not close to a real-world test. This also tallies with the pricing AMD has set of the card: $699, which targets the very lowest RTX 2080 pricing around and undercuts the majority of SKUs on the market. Well, Dr. Su mentioned the next-gen GPU architecture by name only once, when mentioning the future architectures of AMD.

Radeon VII will be the first ever 7nm gaming GPU when it lands early February. So, still no news as to when that little beauty is going to make an appearance, but we're still betting on Computex, around the same time as the new AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs...
