AMD Radeon VII revealed as AMD's 7nm flagship gaming GPU

Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang                  CNET

From a comparison perspective, the Vega 64 or even Nvidia's recent launch, the RTX 2080 come with 8 GB of graphics memory, which means a two-fold capability enhancement for the Radeon VII. The pricier GeForce RTX 2080 Ti will likely outgun it in most situations.

"The performance is lousy", said Huang, speaking to Gizmodo.

"FreeSync was never proven to work". In the meantime, it turns out AMD shared more of its own benchmark data than we initially thought. The Vega VII is not a fully enabled chip. "And if we turn on ray tracing we'll crush it", he added.

AMD has used its CES 2019 keynote to unveil a new flagship gaming GPU called the AMD Radeon VII, built on a 7nm process and using its second-generation Vega architecture, and it will be launching on February 7th 2019 for $699 (roughly £660 when converted with 20 percent added for tax).

Huang continued by talking about FreeSync, more specifically about the narrative that NVIDIA finally admitted defeat to the open-source technology.

Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang slammed rival AMD's first 7-nanometer gaming graphics card right after it was unveiled.

As you would expect, the Radeon VII will offer full FreeSync 2 HDR support, with AMD proudly pointing to its ever-growing FreeSync ecosystem and a total monitor count that now exceeds 550.

Although most performance slides are focusing on the so-called content creators applications like DaVinci, Premiere, Luxmark, Blender, and others, there is a single slide that compares both the RTX 2080 and RX Vega 64 to the upcoming Radeon VII. Pricing of the processor is yet to be announced while the Radeon VII will debut on February 7 for United States dollars 700 and will be bundled with digital copies of Resident Evil 2, The Division 2 and Devil May Cry 5.

The report stated that AMD CEO Lisa Su responded to Huang's comment by saying "I would probably suggest he hasn't seen it" - referring the to the Radeon VII. You can see in the table, embedded directly below, that the new Radeon VII is compared to the RX Vega 64 in a long list of AAA titles and comes out approx 28 per cent faster on average.
