AMD launches world's first 7nm gaming GPU Radeon VII for $699

AMD launches world's first 7nm gaming GPU Radeon VII for $699

In response to Huang's remarks, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su said that the company is very excited and she would "suggest that he hasn't seen it yet".

"FreeSync was never proven to work".

Neither claim would be particularly surprising to find on any message board where people support their preferred graphics technologies like sports fans cheer for their favorite teams. AMD may be still planning to introduce the full GPU for gaming, we simply don't know yet.

There are some significant changes to the package due to the size of the new 7nm 2nd generation Vega GPU, and we are looking at a 331mm2 GPU, surrounded by 4GB HMB2 chips.

The biggest difference came in Fallout 76, which AMD shows running over 68 percent faster on the Radeon VII.

PA slams Israeli "apartheid road" in West Bank
He warned that this road plan could lead to the expulsion of Khan Al-Ahmar village and more than 21 other Palestinian communities. Israel says the barrier is necessary for security, but for Palestinians it has become a symbol of the occupation.

AMD Radeon VII will not probably compete with TITAN RTX, it will not probably compete with RTX 2080 Ti either.

These omissions reportedly led Huang to say that the Radeon VII "barely keeps up with a 2080". In the meantime, it turns out AMD shared more of its own benchmark data than we initially thought. "And if we turn on ray tracing we'll crush it", he added. Besides the 7nm size, the Radeon VII will also use 16GB of high-performance memory with a pretty wild claimed 1TB bandwidth. More details about those tests can be found here. Ray tracing allows for more cinematic and realistic visuals. So we'll see what happens in that regard.

With that being said, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang is unimpressed with the performance of the Radeon VII. The truth is most of the FreeSync monitors do not work. "And if it does, we will let it work".

What makes the Radeon VII interesting is its price, and while Nvidia might have the upper hand with RTX in terms of ray tracing and DLSS, which have yet to be seriously implemented in games, the Radeon VII has a $100 lower suggested retail price compared to the RTX 2080, as the price of Nvidia's RTX 2080 Founders Edition is now $799, while AMD asks for $699, with three nice titles bundled with the card. Either way, it's nice to see that neither Huang nor Su's "devil may care" attitudes are limited to wearing leather jackets during major announcements of new graphics products.
