AMD announces the Radeon VII graphics card: $699, February launch

AMD Radeon VII 7nm Vega

With a 4,096-bit memory interface and a memory clock speed of 1GHz, the card will also come with a staggering 1TB/s of raw memory bandwidth available, which is more than double Vega 64 which sits at 484GB/s.

Why it matters: The next generation of AMD gaming GPUs has arrived. It provides up to 27 percent higher performance in the popular open source 3D creation application Blender, up to 27 percent higher performance in the professional video editing, color correction and visual effects application DaVinci Resolve 15, and up to 62 percent higher performance in the OpenCL LuxMark compute benchmark compared to the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card.

During the CES keynote, Lisa Su showed some performance numbers for an unnamed Ryzen 3000 series CPU in Cinebench R15. With price parity against the RTX 2080, AMD is clearly angling to challenge that chip, but we won't know how effective that challenge will be until we have hardware in-house.

- Radeon VII will launch 7 February for $699 Dollars. As usual, board partners are also expected to offer a variety of alternative SKUs. It's an early sample, and AMD says it's still working out what the final frequency will be.

Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein expected to leave Justice Department in weeks
At the earliest, Barr's confirmation vote would take place in mid-February. It is not clear who Trump will nominate to fill Rosenstein's position.

While exact performance of course remains to be seen, it's interesting that AMD is basing its gaming-focussed version of Vega 20 on the cut down variant of the GPU, as the additional cores on a fully enabled version could have enabled RTX 2080-beating performance - going by AMD's own figures and our own rough calculations, at least. 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. In both cases, the Radeon VII was just one frame ahead at an average of 62fps on both games compared to the RTX's 61fps. Radeon VII.5? Radeon VII+?

- The Radeon 7 (Radeon VII) was announced today as their new high-end GPU.

It is likely that AMD will use more power for the same performance - 300W vs. 250W - and lack any forward-looking ray tracing support, but the Radeon VII deal is sweetened a little with the knowledge it will ship with codes for upcoming Devil May Cry 5, The Division 2 and Resident Evil 2 titles. More information is available on the official website.
