AMD officially unveils the 7 nm Radeon VII high-end gaming GPUs

Radeon VII performance

In addition to that 16GB of HBM2, the Radeon VII also has 60 compute units and 3840 stream processors (AMD's equivalent of Nvidia's CUDA cores) running at up to 1.8GHz, which AMD claim will deliver up to 29% higher gaming performance than their existing top-end 4K graphics card, the Radeon RX Vega 64.

TEAM RED AMD has shown off the Radeon Vega II, the world's first 7nm gaming GPU, and offered up some details on its incoming Ryzen 3 desktop CPUs. The company's new Radeon VII GPU is its second generation Vega Graphics core, with features like Async Compute, Rapid Packed Math and Shader Intrinsics.

AMD is billing the Radeon VII as the go-to card for content creators as well, showing more than 25 percent performance increases across Blender, DaVinci Resolve 15, and Adobe Premiere.

Celebrating the 50-year milestone AMD is to hit on May 1 this year, Dr. Su spent a little time in outlining how iterative, smart advances in architecture are likely to play a larger part in enhancing future performance than automatic gains from moving to ever-smaller processes, which have slowed down as manufacturing challenges and associated research and implementation costs have escalated.

De Blasio says every resident in NYC will be guaranteed health care
And now de Blasio plans to further embrace illegal immigrants by providing them with free health care on the taxpayers' dime. The emergency room is the worst way to get health care, it's the most expensive way to get health care, ' he said.

Naturally, a 4K monster card isn't going to be cheap, but with a price of $699, it's right in line with the RTX 2080. With AMD Radeon FreeSync technology, the popular, standards-based adaptive sync technology supported by more than 550 gaming monitors, gamers can experience smooth gameplay at every level.

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.

It does need to be said that the performance benchmarks that AMD has presented for the Radeon VII are very much hand-picked and that when the full suite of modern PC games and benchmarks are pushed through the 7nm Vega GPU things might look a lot different. There's a chance that across the board of DX11 and the dwindling number of DX12 games that the Radeon VII might start to lag behind a touch. Radeon 7 is their first consumer desktop 7nm GPU. Of course, I'll have to wait until the game comes out to see how the RTX 2080 fares by comparison.
