AMD teases third-gen Ryzen processor performance ahead of mid-2019 launch

AMD Launches Next Radeon VII GPU, the World's First 7nm GPU

While we don't have explicit details of the Radeon VII's core configuration yet, Su said it has 60 compute cores (giving it 3840 shader ALUs) running at a nominal frequency of 1.8 GHz. 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. So what's inside the new Radeon VII? This new Radeon VII GPU is built on 2nd gen "Vega" architecture and offers 16GB memory, 1TB/s memory bandwidth and up to 29 percent higher gaming performance compared to its predecessor. Read about the key features of the AMD Radeon VII graphics below. Our latest game benchmark results suggest that the Radeon VII will come in slightly below the Nvidia RTX 2080, as on average that offers a little over 30 percent more performance than the Vega 64.

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.

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.

Su also mentioned that AMD is working closely with the team at Capcom to help create the photorealistic characters of the game and some of the environments.

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.

The small chip has a unique triplet design, which has a die with 8 cores and 16 threads and a larger I/O die, specifically designed for desktops, that feeds data from AMD's Zen 2 architecture to the rest of the system. 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.

To this end, Dr. Su recapped on the significant strides made by the consumer Ryzen and server-focussed Epyc processors, built on an all-new architecture and connectivity fabric created to scale easily to 32 cores and 64 cores, respectively, bringing more compute per socket to both ecosystems than ever before.
