AMD Announces Radeon VII GPU During CES Keynote

AMD Radeon VII on stage

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 V10, and up to 42 percent higher performance in Strange Brigade 11, compared to the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card.

The GPU landscape is more nebulous, though the introduction of Radeon VII is a left-field move that could cause a problem for the high-end RTX GPUs: we have only another month to find out for ourselves.

AMD's CEO Lisa Su unveiled the AMD Radeon VII GPU on the CES 2019 stage, the company's new graphics chip built using the enhanced second-generation Vega architecture and a 7nm process technology. While we all had assumed (based on the logo trademark) that it would be called Radeon Vega II, it is in fact called Radeon VII. Well, Dr. Lisa Su has been relatively cagey about the exact GPU specifications at the heart of of the new high-performance card. We know that the card will feature 16GB of HBM memory and 1TB/s of memory bandwidth, with an estimated 25 percent performance uplift at the same power level.

The AMD Radeon VII GPU is expected to start shipping on February 7th 2019 with a recommend retail price of $699 excluding taxes, which is roughly £660 including 20 percent tax when converted directly. Interestingly the RX Vega 64 houses, you guessed it, 64 CUs, which means the new Radeon VII actually has fewer GCN cores inside it.

Patrick Moorhead, principal Moor Insights & Strategy, said the Radeon VII will perform best in the consumer creative space given its high-bandwidth memory, but it will also perform well in gaming.

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. 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...

AMD Radeon VII graphics brings maximum performance for hardcore enthusiast gamers, delivering incredible, ultra-smooth gaming experiences at consistently high FPS, in 1440p, ultrawide and 4K resolutions.
