CES 2019: AMD unveils 7nm gaming GPU, Radeon VII

AMD Radeon VII on stage

Given the highly-parallel nature of the NAMD software, it's not too surprising that the 64-core Epyc walked away with a decisive victory, but the circa-20% performance advantage for the Epyc is a good bit greater than the simple difference in core counts (64 vs. 56) would imply.

The Radeon VII, or "Radeon Seven", is AMD's first to use a 7nm process for gaming.

Radeon VII uses 16GB of HBM2 (second-generation high bandwidth memory), whereas the RTX 2080 features 8GB of GDDR6.

As you'd expect, there's support for all of AMD's latest technologies. In addition, AMD Radeon FreeSync2 HDR technology offers more than 2X better brightness and color volume compared to sRGB. 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. We'll get a chance to test out the Radeon VII soon, so we'll know just how anxious Nvidia should be. Most impressive, OpenCL performance will rise a huge 62-percent, AMD claims.

"It provides seamless, high-refresh gaming at 1080p, ultrawide 1440p, and 4K". Most probably, AMD Radeon VII will be available for sale in stores worldwide by mid-2019.

As for when you'll be able to get one yourself, there's actually not long to wait. It's also worth noting that those who purchase eligible Radeon VII's will also receive free copies of Resident Evil 2, The Division 2, and Devil May Cry 5. In all honesty it makes it sound like the Radeon VII was a huge surprise for Nvidia and that it hadn't seen and RTX 2080-level competition coming from AMD. It launches on February 7, and all within 24 hours we've had NVIDIA's founder and CEO Jensen Huang talk about AMD's return to the enthusiast end of PC graphics cards as "underwhelming". Meanwhile, last year's Ryzen 7 2700X scores 1754 points in the same test, so we are looking at a decent performance bump.
