January 10, 2019

Meet the Radeon VII.

Today at CES 2019 AMD has just officially announced its next-generation GPU, the Radeon VII. It’s the world’s first GPU with a 7nm process and is scheduled to release next month.

A roundup of features on the Radeon VII include 3840 stream processors, 16 GB of video memory, 1 TB/s memory bandwidth and support for AMD’s FreeSync2 HDR technology.

The Radeon VII was also designed as a direct competitor to the Nvidia RTX 2080, which is able to handle 4K gaming at better framerates – with AMD promising more than 60 fps in the same resolution. The specifications also result to a 29 percent increase in gaming performance and 36 percent increase in performance of content creation apps.

“AMD Radeon VII is the highest-performance gaming graphics card we ever created,” said Scott Herkelman, corporate vice president and general manager, Radeon Technologies Group at AMD. “It is designed for gamers, creators and enthusiasts who demand ultra-high quality visuals, uncompromising performance and immersive gaming experiences.”

The AMD Radeon VII will retail for $699 and will be available starting on February 7th.
